(March 20, 2020) The Refuge at Windmill Creek underwent a construction plan review from the Worcester County Technical Review Committee during its meeting on Wednesday, March 11. The 90 single-family lot project will be located northwest of Beauchamp Road and north of Route 589.
Its most recent step was passing a preliminary plat review on Feb. 6. The Worcester County Commissioners granted the project residential planned community status last July.
After that, it passed the master plan step two on Nov. 7, but with the condition that the sidewalk extend to both sides of Beauchamp Road for bicycle and pedestrian safety. Originally, the sidewalk only extended to St. John Neumann Church.
The housing project will be the first residential planned community in Worcester County in 11 years. Chris Larmore, a contractor with Blue Water, said housing construction could begin by late summer or early fall. Larmore also said that Blue Water is in the process of obtaining the building permit.
