Millwood Commons Development
For those wondering what is being built on the corner of Blue Hole Road and Bell Road, the answer is Millwood Commons Apartment Complex. The Planned Urban Development (PUD) for this type of development was originally approved back in 1996. This phase includes 336 apartments. The entrance to these apartments will be on Bell Road. There is an emergency access road on Blue Hole Road. The Blue Hole Road access will be locked for normal operations.
The HOA was not in favor of more apartments and we voiced our opposition on numerous occasions starting in 1996. However, since this property was zoned for this type of development, there was nothing that could legally be done to stop it. However, over the years, we were able to get the over-all number of units reduced. Originally, the plan was for 884 apartments, plus 116 single family homes, on the property adjacent to Oak Highlands. Over time, the number was successfully reduced down to 688 apartments, plus the 116 single family homes.
