Plans are on the table for a $150 million development in Villa Hills, and some residents are worried about the amount of housing and its potential impact on traffic. Henry Mitchell lives on Carpenter's Trace, adjacent to the proposed development site. He and his neighbors know that 187 apartments and a parking lot could go just 50 feet from their yards. They've scattered signs throughout the city noting their opposition.  "It's too close and we're against the commercialization of Villa Hills," Mitchell said. "They want to bring in commercial and retail business here when Villa Hills historically has been a bedroom residential community since the early '60s."
