Developers have changed their plan for 126 apartment homes on Warm Springs Ave. in Barber Valley.

BoiseDev was the first to report on the planed Barber Hills Vistas project in April. The project met resistance of neighbors in the nearby Dallas Harris Estates subdivision (disclosure: I own a home here). 

The new plan replaces the apartment complex idea with 47 homes with alley-loaded garages, similar to the neighboring Harris Ranch development. It would also include a 50 foot wildlife corridor along the west side of the property, as well as a "wetland enhancement area" that would be adjacent to an existing pond an nature trail area owned separately.
