Twenty-four duplex lots in The Lakes of Boulder Ridge subdivision will now be developed as 37 new single family home lots.
The Lake in the Hills Village Board on Thursday approved an amendment to planned development ordinance and a second amendment to the annexation agreement and final plot approval for the subdivision.
The changes will be made to lots in the southern portion of The Lake of Boulder Ridge development along Coyote Lakes Circle at the northwest corner of Algonquin and Frank roads.
"Sales have been slow for the duplex units and the developer has received indications from potential residents of the desire for more single-family detached options," according to village documents.
A public hearing was held before the village board on the recommended changes on Sept. 11. No one from the public spoke during the hearing.
An annexation agreement approved in 2002 allowed for 242 duplex units and three single-family lots in the Lakes of Boulder Ridge. In total, 112 duplex units on 45 duplex lots have been constructed as 130 units on 65 duplex lots still remain vacant, according to village documents.
The last permit for a unit in the subdivision was issued in 2007.
Single-family home lots would be priced around $20,000 higher than duplex lots, according to village documents.
