New 146 Lot Subdivision Planned For Highway 29, Quintette Road

September 26, 2023

A new 146 lot subdivision is proposed for the area of Quinette Road and Highway 29.

“Carrington Valley” would be located on 145.6 acres that front both Highway 29 and Quintette Road.

The development is being proposed by  David W. Fitzpatrick for single family homes, according to Escambia County Development Review Committee (DRC) documents.

The proposal is in the initial staff internal review phase of the DRC process and has not yet been set for a public meeting.

This development is not related to a 134 lot subdivision proposed just to the south. Read more: New 134 Lot Subdivision Planned For Highway 29 Near Pinoak Lane graphics.

    What’s going to happen with all the watershed from the creek in this area?

    They need to put all these new subdivisions in Century where the have the infrastructure and vision to handle the growth.

    It deals more with the number of wells and the size of the underground water supply. pipes can be repaired or replaced. the farther away from the towers means the smaller the pipes. At some point, another tower or 2 will need built and larger pipes ran and more wells. All that is costly and not done overnight..

    Complain all you want … one of YOUR neighbors sold them the property, right? I am sitting on 50 acres right now, and I can promise you all, for the right price, I would “ooo, take the money and run”!!!!

    I don’t believe Cottage Hill Water will be able to handle this many more homes. They already have regular water main breaks.

    The poor wildlife is going to have nowhere to go, please be kind when you start to see an influx of wildlife visitors, they continue to be pushed out of their homes.

    Sick and tired of dollar stores popping up, pushing down hundreds Acres of trees for solar panels and now every time turn around someone wants to build another subdivision. No one seems to care about wildlife or having country life anymore. It’s all about the almighty dollar. Shame on all involved. Pathetic.

    These are the same people that will probably start complaining about farm animal smell and roosters crowing. If you move out this just remember you’re moving into our farm life territory. You deal with it not the other way around.

    Just remember what our commissioner Barry stated and was published in this paper” just because it is proposed doesn’t mean it will be approved”, I bet you it will be overwhelmingly approved ! Why have zoning boards and construction boards: just rubber stamp okay, unless you have some chickens and a few animals, then you’ll be denied rezoning. What a farce. The little guy denied, big money guys okay?

    So much for the country life.

    Where is that bypass to Molino?

  12. Leslie on September 26th, 2023 9:58 am

    Just curious. Why the push for all the subdivisions all of the sudden?

    Our School District needs to start planning (if not already) to build some more schools up that way. Especially a high school!

  14. Frankly on September 26th, 2023 8:12 am

    I have no problem with building but What ever happened to the bypass that has been proposed from I-10 through quintette to Milton that was all the news just a couple of years ago.

    If these houses are allowed so close to quintette? Have you travelled the causeway from Pensacola to Pace lately or Woodbine Road?

    The Santa Rosa growth now has Quintette looking like a parking lot at times especially if there is an accident on the Causeway. Already need a Red light at Quintette and 95a.

    oh, and dont forget other public services. Fire-Rescue and Police/Sheriff

    Sounds like saturation of land in one area. Cedar Tree Lane /95A PinoaK Lane, Carrington Way and who knows how many more.
    Some entity needs to consider S.I.Ds for flooding, water run off, rural water, and sewage systems. Now is the time. Developers need to be responsible for these expenses, not local taxpayers!
    Mr Barry needs to address these issues before it gets out of control.

    We certainly aren’t going to stop the new builds and I’m starting to be okay with that if the county would improve infrastructure to accommodate the additional families, kids, traffic, health, crime, safety, etc, etc. Seems that’s always the last to be considered. Nothing getting better.
