Future owner Raleigh Overbay was forced to make revisions on the plan over the past few months because of public scrutiny.
For some that meant a small victory no matter what today's decision was.
As for construction, Overbay hopes the first homes will start going up this fall, and hopes to have folks moving in by the beginning of next year.

They inhibit platelet activity in the blood, making it less likely to clog arteries.
The researcher-- John Folts-- is the same man who found that aspirin prevents heart attacks and red wine curbs heart disease.
Folts suggests you can get the same benefits from grape juice, black tea, and some fruits and vegetables.
