RICHMOND, Va. ( – A new 96-home subdivision in suburban Richmond got the green light Monday from City Council, but there are still some trees standing in its way.

By unanimously approving a rezoning proposal, the council allowed for the development of Archer Springs, a 44-acre Southside neighborhood off Duryea Drive near Huguenot Road. Local homebuilder StyleCraft Homes is the developer. The company proposed the project about a year and a half ago.

The development drew opposition from nearby neighborhoods. “Save our neighborhood” signs dot Duryea Drive, and several residents expressed concerns about added traffic, tree removal and the density of Archer Springs.
