I visited this summit yesterday. A great viewpoint. Note that the 1036 summit (benchmark) is actually among the houses off of Ridge Drive south of the 1000+ point that the short trail leads up to. Although, upon standing atop the 1000+ point it seemed like the houses were no higher. Maybe that 1020+ contour got graded off to build the houses.
Good observation! I am actually going to look more into that. There is a ball field now where the high point was. It is almost like they pushed all debris more to the edge in order to make the park and the highpoint!
