A 900-home subdivision on Old Scenic Highway has the green light from East Baton Rouge planning and zoning as of Tuesday.
The new development will be right outside of Zachary city limits, and has been met with opposition from members of the Zachary City council.
Though it will be outside of Zachary, the subdivision will be served by Zachary's schools, police, and fire departments.
Council members are concerned about overcrowded schools and first responders being spread too thin.
