Apartments project hits snag, commissioners told

ROSA SALTER RODRIGUEZ | The Journal Gazette

A large apartment complex proposed for the west side of Coldwater Road has hit a snag, the Allen County commissioners learned at their meeting today.

Developers of Bonterra will be resubmitting their development plan for the site after a landowner decided not to sell them a parcel for the project, Patrick Rew, principal planner for the Department of Planning Services, told commissioners in submitting a rezoning request.

The Allen County Plan Commission gave the rezoning a "Do Pass" recommendation prior to the proposed changes, which will increase the apartment buildings from two stories to three to accommodate all but five of the 228 originally planned units.

Commissioners unanimously passed the rezoning, but not before they questioned Rew at length about the project, indicating they had received letters from residents objecting to various aspects of it.
