Windsor Mill housing development closer to approval

(Draper Journal) Major changes proposed for the neighborhood around 11400 South and 700 West are one step closer to becoming reality with land use and zoning changes recently approved by the Draper City Council.

The zoning and land use changes paved the way for the 18.5-acre Windsor Mill housing development, which has been a subject of controversy and negotiation in the city council and planning commission for the past several months. The development likely will include 44 condominium units in eight buildings, 17 single-family homes on 1/3- and ¼-acre lots, an indoor soccer facility and a trailhead for the Jordan River Parkway. Details of the development will still have to be approved.

If built, the development will change the character of the neighborhood, which currently consists of single family homes on large lots. Area residents have expressed concerns to the city council about density, traffic and the development’s proximity to the Jordan River.

UDOT still needs to conduct a traffic study, but the development likely will be accessed from both 700 West and 11400 South, according to Dennis Workman of the Draper City Planning Department. There will be a buffer zone between the development and the river, and the development will include a trailhead with parking lot and both pedestrian and equestrian trails connecting 700 West with the Jordan River Parkway.
