Two more subdivisions proposed for Hoo Shoo Too Road area

From the Baton Rouge Business Report, Real Estate Weekly:

When the 90-home gated community of Mallard Park was  proposed north of Hoo Shoo Too Road in May, the city-parish Planning Commission  denied the development because the developer refused to connect it to outside  streets. The Metro Council gave Mallard Park final approval anyway, overriding  the Planning Commission. Now come proposals for 239 more homes in the same area.  Oak Ridge Estates would be a 149-lot development south of Elliott Road, a little  more than half a mile northwest of the intersection of Elliott and Hoo Shoo Too;  Mallard Trails would be a 90-lot development in the 22250 block of Hoo Shoo Too,  east of Wood Duck Drive. Both developments appear to have extra connectivity  rather than one entrance and exit, says Planning Commission spokesman Ryan  Holcomb. “I think we’ll be able to get the approval,” says Mallard Trails  developer George Robinson, declining to give details about the 56-acre  subdivision. Applicant Brandon Dodson could not be reached for comment on the  proposed 66-acre Oak Ridge Estates. Holcomb says details about both developments  could be on the Planning Commission’s website by Nov. 2. The commission could  hear the proposals Nov. 13. —Adam Pearson
