AUGUSTA, Ga.---Plans for mixed-income housing on Deans Bridge Road in south Augusta have been scrapped. The developer says he will not pursue the idea further.
The idea was a mixed-use community, with low- and middle-income housing. But neighbors in the area signed petitions and took the issue to Augusta commissioners, who also say they don't support it.
As a result, the developer is backing off.
