TIPPECANOE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – New housing addition proposals were the focus of Wednesday night’s Tippecanoe County Area Plan Commission meeting.
The Commission recommended approval of three new additions and another rezoning request that help fill in vacant areas that are surrounded by other developments.
APC assistant director Ryan O’Gara said it’s a good sign that the market is turning around.
“It’s essentially anti-sprawl. The utilities are already available. The roadways are already there. In some cases, transit is there. We’re not extending public services out to some far flung area,” said O’Gara.
Centennial Townhomes is the lone proposal in Lafayette, for 12 town houses on Fifth Street between Brown and Cincinnati.
Thirty homes are proposed for a subdivision next to Lindberg Village on Klondike Road.
The third request is for 104 homes proposed for 48 acres on County Road 75 East, near the Winding Ridge subdivision.
The commission also recommended a residential rezoning for 30 acres on Morehouse Road, next to the Tippecanoe Memory Gardens.
All proposals now head to their respective local government bodies for a vote.
