Truesdale Board of Aldermen hear proposal for new subdivision


The Boone Ridge Manor development is a proposed subdivision in Truesdale that would be constructed between Pinckney and Water Streets including 64 new houses. 

Cochran Engineering met with the Truesdale Board of Aldermen before their meeting on April 9 to discuss the development and address any concerns from the board and citizens.

The development would include 64 new houses with entrances on both Pinckney and Water Streets. Those houses will largely be custom built according to Project Manager Clayton Daniels. A home builder is already involved in the project. 

There are also plans for future development with a road running south through the subdivision.

Daniels said that in the future they hope to develop all the way south to Warrior Ridge Elementary School.

Engineers from Cochran addressed concerns about congestion that may be created by the development, especially with the truck traffic that would be involved in homebuilding. Kurt Daniels responded that they felt the two roadways entering and exiting the subdivision would be sufficient to disperse the traffic. 

As of the meeting, construction was scheduled to begin on the development in the fall of this year. 

Board members heard from two other business interests during the meeting. First from Wildly Wow Candy about obtaining their business license to begin manufacturing freeze-dried candy. They are largely focused on wholesale distribution and said that they do not plan on conducting routine retail sales.

They also heard from Dustin Loeffler, who owns the GG Sports Park. He discussed his plans for the future of the complex with the board, including some significant expansions.

Currently the facility offers several sites for paintball, airsoft and gel blaster games. Loeffler outlined his plans to expand the facility to accommodate other mainstream sports and a UTV and dirt bike track.

The largest expansion he explained was the construction of the race tracks.

He advised the board that he was moving forward with development with his neighbors in mind. Vehicles on the track would be limited to 96 decibels, roughly the volume of a lawn mower. Races would likely be time trial based, with only one vehicle on the track at a time.

They scheduled a public hearing on the racetracks at 5 p.m. on April 24 before their normal meeting.
