Canterbury Heights Neighborhood Addresses City Council

Canterbury Heights Neighborhood Addresses City Council
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

After being deferred twice over the summer, a proposed 17-lot development is receiving scrutiny after neighbors just to the south feel that they've been misled about what would be done near their homes.

"I'm a little confused because I thought the reason this got deferred twice was that Mr. Cooper was working on a solution for our questions and concerns, but I haven't seen that so far," homeowner Todd Miller said.

The Canterbury Heights neighborhood has one main road that is used as an entrance and an exit, which both homeowners and city council members see as a major safety concern.

"With only one access point, we're going to have a lot of heavy construction traffic. A lot of guys, 5 o'clock, they're tearing out of there, they're not looking for kids," homeowner Brian Cambell said.

The Sioux Falls code requires at least two temporary access points for emergency vehicles into a neighborhood, and Fire Marshal Dean Lanier says those can be dirt roads, one to the south and one to the north called Rosemary Street. Homeowners aren't sold on that idea.

"Rosemary is a piece of Marlowe that no longer has the curb, that's what Rosemary is. Then beyond that, it's a farm road," homeowner Carol McDaniel said.

People in the neighborhood want development to continue and welcome the new homes, but they want their area finished first, a sentiment echoed by the city council.

"All of you guys are nice guys and you work really hard and you do great things for the city, but I am so disappointed for how these people have been treated, I can hardly say," council member Michelle Erpenbach said.

"It's unfortunate, these homeowners have had to live in a half-developed development, and they're going to have to stay that way until many years," council member Greg Jamison said.

On a vote of 1 to 7, the new development was rejected. Neighbors and city council members hope to work together to make sure an additional major access road is added. At that point, the additional development would likely be submitted again.
