No single family homes to be built at new apartment site in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash., -- The Richland Planning Commission is not having a public hearing on an application to reclassify 15 acres from low density residential to a medium density residential property local ed south of Westcliffe Boulevard since Wolff Enterprises withdrew their plans to built some 40 single family homes on the land.


The land will now be used strictly for 176 apartment units on 15 acres of land.  Wolff would not comment on the change of plans.  There is a meeting October 6 at 7:00pm at Richland City Hall open to residents to discuss the project.

 Applewood Estates Homeowners Association and Brantingham Greens Homeowners Association are suing Wolff Enterprises and Badger Mountain Village Investments  to stop the project on the behalf of upset residents.

The lawsuit alleges that the city changed traffic and density requirements for the project, making it a "major" amendment, which was pushed through without any public scrutiny.
