30 duplexes and triplexes planned for east side of Payette Lake in McCall


A series of duplexes and triplexes could pop up along Dawson Avenue in McCall.

Jim Fronk, an engineer representing developer HTW McCall, presented a plan to McCall Planning and Zoning that would bring 30 total units to the east side of the lake.

The development calls for 24, 995 square foot two-story duplexes and six, 960 square foot two-story triplexes. Both style complexes would have parking below.

Current plans show that the complexes would be spread out along Dawson Ave in a way that ‘preserves’ the trees on the 3.6 acres of land.

“(It) took a lot of effort in trying to avoid the trees on these parcels,” Fronk said. “And so how you see these buildings laying out are an attempt to reduce the footprints of these buildings.”

The applicant said sidewalks, curbs, and gutters would need to be added along Dawson Ave.

Commissioner Robert Lyons showed some concern regarding an intersection on Dawson Ave. that he says could become busy if these complexes were to be approved.

“I think that intersection could be a little tricky with increased traffic and everything else. Some people blow through those signs,” Lyons said.

Another commissioner pointed out that an upcoming agenda item could connect a pathway along Spruce to Dawson which would help alleviate the intersection.

Next up, the Dawson Avenue complexes will be back in front of P&Z for a vote.
