An early rendering of a potential mix-use development that would be built along Highland Colony Parkway North in Ridgeland.

The Ridgeland Board of Aldermen tabled a proposed mix-used development in Ridgeland in April, but it could have new life in June.

Mattiace Properties wants to build on Highland Colony Parkway North, just south of Lake Castle Road.

The proposal for a conditional use included nearly 300 living units in Phase 1, which would have covered 17.5 acres and approximately 62,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, including a hotel and grocery store on the first floor of the three-story buildings.

According to minutes from the zoning meeting, Mattiace CEO Andrew Mattiace addressed the board. He stated that he had worked with adjacent property owners Kerioth Corporation and the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

However, multiple people opposed the project, with the leading complaint centering around the residential units involved. There were also complaints that the development would cause an increase in traffic and that the combination could potentially lead to a decrease in property values for property owners in the vicinity.
