Housing Development off of Road 44 is Causing Uproar

PASCO, Wash. - It's a topic heating up in Pasco, whether a 300 home development will be built near a quiet residential area off of Road 44.  Now it's up to the city of Pasco to decide what is next for the area.  

Neighbors living off of Road 44 are outraged by the thought of the new construction.  They said their once quiet neighborhood will never be the same if the development is built on the land once owned by the Department of Agriculture.

The land was recently re-zoned and developer Al Angelo of Vancouver bought the area for $2 million. 

The list of worries from neighbors are numerous.  Some said the blowing dust once construction starts would be unmanageable.  Others worry the smaller homes would depreciate their property.

Neighbors have even gone as far as suing the state to try to prevent the construction. 

However, on Friday the city of Pasco said it's very likely the construction will move forward.
