(DAPHNE, Ala.) - Residents in a Daphne neighborhood are upset over proposed construction that could be built next to their homes.
Homeowners in Tiawasee Trace say a road linking the construction to their neighborhood would cause problems.
Developers want to put a road through a hill to a brand new neighborhood called Retreat at Tiawasee, adding an additional 50 or so homes to the neighborhood.
Tiawasee Trace residents say the planning is all wrong.
The neighborhood is built around Daphne's Taiwasee Creek and is already home to around 50 families.
Only one road connects the entire neighborhood to the entrance at County Road 13.
Neighbors say with the new development attached to theirs, they're concerned there will be a lot more traffic and property values will decrease.
They say it could also mean the diminishing of the natural, undeveloped land they love so much here.
"Our neighborhood was never intended to have over 150 homes in it," said Page Mims with the Tiawasee Trace Neighborhood Association. "That was not the intent when they built this neighborhood. If that had been the intent, then they wouldn't have this small entrance way," Mims said.
Neighbors spent part of the afternoon handing out flier to their fellow residents urging them to come to the public hearing on Monday.
The Daphne City Council will have the final say.
