253-lot subdivision proposed off County Line Road

Coming up Tuesday at New Bern’s Planning and Zoning Board is a proposed subdivision of 546 acres to create two residential subdivisions totaling 253 lots near Carolina Colours and almost as big as it.

It has been more than a decade, before the Great Recession, since a housing development this large has been proposed for New Bern.

Hutton Pointe at Bluewater Rise would subdivide 115 acres into a 151-lot planned unit development.

Bendigo Bay at Bluewater Rise would subdivide 61 acres into a 112-lot planned unit development.

Both subdivisions are being handled by John Thomas Engineering and A. Sydes Construction, Inc. Sides Construction bought the total acreage from Weyerhaeuser NR Company for $2.1 million in December 2015.

The acreage is presently undeveloped and is forested. It is located just southwest of Carolina Colours north of County Line Road and west of Old Airport Road.

Like Carolina Colours, Taberna and Greenbrier, it would replace former Weyerhaeuser timberlands with a fairly dense residential neighborhood collectively known as Bluewater Rise.

Upon buildout, it would result in a significant increase in traffic on County Line Road and Riverdale Road, which is the nearest access road to U.S. 70, and to Old Airport Road and through the Carolina Colours area, where the nearest grocery store (Harris Teeter) and shopping center are located.

The planning and zoning board will also weigh in on a proposed subdivision off Neuse Boulevard near Karen Drive.
