A pink elephant sits in the window of Michelle Deavenport’s house in the College Park subdivision for the Window Safari in March 2020. Deavenport introduced the idea to her community and more than 20 homes participated.

CLUTE — Residents of the College Park subdivision put the brakes on a request to rezone property near their homes, fearing plans to add townhomes and a commercial area would change the environment of their family oriented neighborhood.

Developer Doug Kirk asked the city to consider rezoning the land from single-family housing to planned unit development, allowing him to convert the residential property to a blend of townhomes and commercial properties.
