FOUR CORNERS — Gallatin County commissioners approved the White Horse Ranch subdivision plan earlier this week, which will add 104 single-family homes in the Four Corners Area.
This comes just a few weeks after county commissioners gave the green light for the Creekside Meadows development, which is a 96-lot subdivision nearby.
“It shows that there’s a need and a desire to build subdivisions on water and sewer district services,” said Gallatin County Commissioner Don Seifert. “So there will be in that general area, there will be 300 lots that will be developed in the next year.”
Lots will be between 3,000 square feet and a little more than an acre and will have around 17 acres of open space.
Commissioners say that the new development will be located in a highly desired and growing area.
It will be on about 60 acres of land at the intersection of Baxter and Love Lane directly across the street from the YMCA.
Some public comments surrounding the new subdivisions in the area have addressed about a concern about traffic and road conditions.
“There are some impacts on some of that infrastructure,” said Seifert.
“We’ve got plans to have some of the developers help us improve those roads as well as eventually there will be some major road improvements that the County will help fund.”
The developers have also offered to pay impact fees for students entering the district.
Students entering the new subdivision will be a part of the Monforton School district, as well as the new Gallatin High School district.
