This month, Hoover City Council approved a new subdivision at the intersection of Sulphur Springs Road and Al Seier Road.
Venture Developers, LLC plans to convert the wooded area along Al Seier Road on both sides of the intersection into a 20-lot residential subdivision. The area is currently zoned as a neighborhood shopping district and is surrounded by residential property.
According to the Hoover Planning and Zoning Commission’s minutes from its December meeting, at least one nearby subdivision is not opposed to new homes being added at the site.
Tony Jones, president of the Highland Crest Garden Home subdivision located across the street, told the Commission he felt residential development was the best use of the site. However, Jones voiced concerns about proposed square footage, building materials, possible inclusion of carports and maintenance of a proposed detention pond, the minutes read.
Venture Developers will tentatively be represented by Michael Wood and Bob Hastings of Wood & Hastings Construction and Roy Martin.
