Residents of Woolmarket believe certain issues need to be addressed before a development this large comes to the area. Woolmarket Resident Jennifer McRight said, “Such as the multi-family housing, the roads, which are very narrow, that need to be widened first. Drainage needs to be in place before construction and also the impact on the Harrison County School System.”
Residents News 25 spoke with say the idea of a public hearing is great news and they’re happy to see the council is eager to hear their concerns.
