The project would add 67 homes to the 19.6-acre site. Right now, three homes, some outbuildings and a few head of cattle spread out across two properties. The project would add new homes, largely in pattern with surrounding neighborhoods.

One of the homes, owned by Mark and Karen Dunkley, who own Dunkley Music, would remain. The subdivision, branded as Music, would feature homes from 1,800 to 2,600 square feet. The application asks for annexation into the City of Boise, and looks for a R1-B zoning classification. That would allow for as many as 95 homes – Southpoint proposes about a third less.

“We evaluated the area, market conditions, schools, services and nearby recreation to establish the housing product and associated site plan,” Southpoint wrote in an application letter. “Consistent with the existing community and the Comprehensive Plan, we have designed a site plan that consists of a mixture of residential lot sizes.”

Amenities in the project would include a walking path, pond and climbing boulders.

The annexation and rezoning request will need approval from Boise’s Planning & Zoning Commission. No hearing date yet set.
