New Hope’s approved development is perhaps technically not high density but it is definitely higher density than the surrounding areas. Check out this map;

Map of Proposed Housing

Check out the houses just to the south. Notice how the housing proposal contains much narrower lots, especially on the east side.

How many places to live can be crammed into such as small area? We have high density Winnetka Greens on the southeast side of the Winnetka/Bass Lake Road. There are more town homes and apartments on the northeast corner. then there are apartments on Bass Lake Road on the south side. On the north side there is the St. Therese senior living and Northridge on Boone. With a school at the old Hosterman site, how much more housing can be crammed in such a small area.

I wonder what is planned for the area west of the New Hope golf course? Of course, the city is probably eyeing that for housing as well. We can’t leave it as green space…..no no……we have to tax it right New Hope?
