Subdivision plans proceed amid DEQ soil-contamination concerns * Story * Discussion Subdivision plans proceed amid DEQ soil-contamination concerns By ALLISON MAIER and EVE BYRON Helena Independent Record (MT) January 23,Plans for a proposed subdivision on 325 acres of land that includes the former Franklin Mine are moving forward, though the Department of Environmental Quality has expressed concerns about soil contamination in the area.
The Cornerstone Village Estates subdivision would sit east of Head Lane and south of Franklin Mine Road, on the south end of the Scratchgravel Hills. Preliminary plans for the site would divide the land into 33 lots between five and 10.3 acres in size, each for a single-family home. This is the third vision for the area that the applicant, Helena Christian School, has proposed since acquiring the property six years ago. A 2006 plan to include 208 homes, parkland and a private school on the land had received preliminary subdivision approval. A 2008 plan that upped the number of homes to 800 never made it to a planning board hearing.
