D.R. Horton, which has built homes around Johnson Utilities’ notorious Section 11 wastewater plant at Magic Ranch, and now proposes to build homes around Johnson Utilities’ wastewater plant at Anthem, is committed to minimizing any inconvenience to homeowners, a representative told the Town Council Monday.
“We’re selling a lifestyle,” Dan Bono told the council. The council on March 4 tabled action on the final plat for 146 new homes east and south of the Anthem plant, but voted to approve the plat after speaking with Bono Monday.
Councilwoman Michelle Cordes said she was concerned about odor both as a resident and as a Realtor, and asked if D.R. Horton was doing its due diligence to protect residents from odor and spills. Vice Mayor John Anderson asked how Horton and citizens will be protected if Johnson Utilities doesn’t perform.
