Bayou La Batre Planning Board Members Vote to Deny Subdivision Plans for Duck Hill Property in Coden, Alabama
On April 8, 2019, the Bayou La Batre Planning Board reviewed several important requests for zoning changes and subdivision approvals. A property owner in the Meadowlark Run Subdivision received approval for subdividing a parcel of land, however, the subdivision approval request for the Duck Hill Property off Henry Johnson Rd. and Shell Belt Road in Coden, Alabama did not receive the same news from the board. Local historian, Roger Milne, spoke on behalf of the Bayou La Batre-Coden Historical Society. He noted that the property in question had extensive historical significance and was known by locals to be an important burial ground.
Board member, Stephanie Godsey, also spoke on the significant information she had obtained through discussions with archeologists from the University of South Alabama and other entities. Planning Board President, Debra Jones, also noted substantial concerns on the plans to locate housing units on the property without further archeological studies. Planning Board members also voted to establish the Safe Harbor Subdivision area as an R4 zoning district, which would allow the Bayou La Batre Housing Authority to develop the properties in the area more extensively.
