(Covington)  -  New homes could be built in Covington after the city OKs an 82-home subdivision that will overlook the city.

The project will be called Park Pointe and will build single-family homes on the site of the former Gateway Community & Technical College, near West Pike Street by Dixie Highway.

Most of the land is in Covington, but some of the subdivision will bleed into Park Hills.

Developer Paul Zeltwanger applied for two things from the city, officials say.

He wanted a zone change and the approval of the Stage 1 Developmental plan.  The city agreed to both, but with stipulations.

There will be no road leading form the subdivision to Pike Street, Park Hills will have to open a closed portion of Old State Road and Zeltwanger’s company will take steps to reduce drainage.

The project will move forward pending approval from Park Hills.
