The Botetourt Board of Supervisors approved plans for 22 townhouses behind the Sterling Green Business Park off Route 220.
Neighbors had complained the complex would create noise, traffic and safety problems -- lowering their property values.
So the developers agreed to build fewer townhouses and offer them for sale, not rent -- to earn the board's approval.
Realtors say there's a market in Botetourt for apartments and townhouses, especially because future employees of the Greenfield Industrial Park will need someplace to live.
