Amid controversy, planning leaders approve piece of new development
CENTRAL - The city planning and zoning commission approved lot sizes and other matters related to the development of a mixed-use community Thursday evening.
The group had a concern over lot sizes, but ended up approving the plan. Next, the city council will make the final decision.
Project leaders have designed a neighborhood of apartments, town homes, retail outlets and restaurants on 150 acres at the intersection of Sullivan and Wax.
The project has not been welcomed by some, though. A group filed a lawsuit that was eventually dismissed. Plaintiffs argued the city should not have approved the overall plan because it has almost six times the allowed number of apartments and uses a different traffic study than the one originally approved.
