65 homes and 11 duplexes meet pristine wilderness and angry neighbors
COLUMBIA, 12/2/12 (Beat Byte) -- A subdivision planned by former KOMU TV news anchor Sarah Hill and husband Rob Hill has neighbors planning to protest.
Columbia Independent School formerly owned the site -- on Route K just south of Old Plank Rd. -- before selling it to the Hills in October.
High density housing has been a source of conflict between the Hills and residents near their rentals before. In 2009, Grasslands neighbors lodged several complaints over noise, crime, profanity, and chaos at a Hill-owned apartment complex on Clarkson and Burnam Roads.
McCann provided the Heart Beat with a "Petition of Protest" against the rezoning, tentatively scheduled for Columbia Planning and Zoning Commission review this week and City Council approval in January.
