6. Cadence Crossing
Cadence Crossing is a mixed-use development in Spring Hill that is under construction currently, after being approved by the Municipal Planning Commission in May.
Cadence Crossing neighborhood, for which the developers received approval of a rezoning request from the Board of Mayor and Alderman, includes 29 single family detached lots and 49 townhomes. In addition, two commercial lots for Cadence Crossing sit on a 4.34-acre property that fronts U.S. Highway 31, one of which will be a bank with a 24-hour drive through ATM.
Among the improvements the Cadence Crossing developer is proposing in order to accommodate the increased vehicle trips to and from the development are dedicated left and right turn lanes onto the subdivision’s new public street. There is also a three-lane intersection of the new street and U.S. 31 with a dedicated left-turn lane and a through/right-turn lane onto U.S. 31.
Sidewalk construction is also proposed on both sides of the new Cadence Crossing street.
Throughout the rezoning process for Cadence Crossing, residents living nearby the property consistently attended city meetings to argue against it. Primarily, residents expressed concerns about traffic, safety and quality of life.
Gary Batson, the engineer representing the Cadence Crossing developer, said they would be looking into a screening fence to alleviate the potential issue.
