A development application which proposes the construction of 549 single-family and multi-family residences has been carried indefinitely by the Jackson Planning Board.

The application for the south section of the Jackson Parke residential development involves a 129-acre tract off West Veterans Highway in the Cassville section of Jackson.

The board’s professionals have said 100 of the proposed 549 units would be designated as affordable housing units.

Affordable housing is defined as housing that is sold or rented at below market rates to individuals and families whose income meets certain guidelines.

The Jackson Parke south section application was on the board’s Aug. 17 agenda under legal matters. No testimony regarding the proposal was heard and the board’s attorney, Sean Gertner, said the application has been carried indefinitely pursuant to a court order.

The Jackson Parke south section is part of the larger Jackson Parke development.

The Jackson Parke north section, which was proposed by EL at Jackson LLC, has been approved. Plans call for the construction of 551 residences on a 226-acre tract off Perrineville Road in the Cassville section of Jackson.

The board’s professionals have said the north section is expected to include 120 affordable housing units.
