Nearly four years ago, residents of the relatively small, quiet Springdale neighborhood -- appropriately located off Springdale Drive -- woke up to find a large wooded property across Cornwallis Avenue wasn’t very wooded anymore. Developer Harold V. Pickrell III’s original Planned Development District (PDD) concept called for 16 2- to 3-acre lots to be sold for $1 million each in a gated, horse-themed community. The “clear cutting” of the property upset neighboring residents, but Pickrell alleviated most fears when he told Camden City Council he planned to install a riding trail along the property’s perimeter and a 15- to 20-foot deep buffer of plantings with a four-rail horse fence.
