Summerfield subdivision preliminary plat approved by Shelbyville Plan Commission

The preliminary plat for a housing subdivision on Shelbyville’s southwest side received approval from the Shelbyville Plan Commission Monday.


A 187 lot, approximately 64-acre parcel has been proposed by the Forestar Group at the northwest corner of Progress Parkway and Amos Road.  It's directly south of the Southern Trace subdivision.


The proposed development received mostly favorable reviews from neighboring residents although there were concerns voiced over drainage and traffic, particularly on Amos Road.


Mike Babbitt lives in Eaglebrook.



Melissa Garrard represented Forestar at Monday's meeting.  She explained why one of the development's entrances involved Amos Road.



Summerfield's preliminary plat was approved by unanimous vote.
