Apartment Developments Receive Approval from MAPC


The Jonesboro Metropolitan Area Planning Commission has approved proposals for 2 new apartment developments.

According to the Jonesboro Sun, the commission passed the proposals Tuesday for rezoining 4.69 acres of the former Craighills Golf Course and the preliminary layout of University Woods.

Both plans were passed without any opposition.

PDW Properties LLC asked to rezone Craighills Golf Course as a multi-family residential planned development to construct 14 triplex buildings on the property.  The property is located north of East Craighead Forest Road and west of Bekah Drive.  The proposal is expected to go before the Jonesboro City Council.

University Woods will be a housing complex for only students and faculty, constructed on 15.7 acres on East Johnson Avenue near Arkansas State University.

The complex will have 240 apartments, containing 720 bedrooms.  Pedestrian safety plans for the complex are now in development.
