The Albemarle City Council Monday evening approved a preliminary plat, along with a conditional use permit, for a cluster subdivision off Moss Springs Road of 52 single family lots.

The lots, which will make up the Badin Ridge Subdivision, will range from 1,200 to 1,600 square feet, though most will average around 1,400 square feet. The price range will be between $200,000 to $250,000.

The developer of the project is Badin Ridge LLC, located in Mount Gilead.

The subdivision, located in a noncritical watershed, will be about 24 acres and there will be 6.18 acres of open space. Sandy Lane and Moss Springs Road will be the two entrance points into the subdivision.

The plan complies with zoning regulations for R-10, city family residential.

When passing the conditional use permit, the council agreed that the first five lots would face the newly proposed entrance to the neighborhood, Badin Ridge Drive, rather than Atom Drive. There would also be open space to serve as a barrier between the five lots and Atom Drive.

Several people who live around the proposed subdivision spoke out against it, citing potential flooding issues and the harm it would do to the environment.
