Back To Front Page

The Chesterton Advisory Plan Commission will conduct a public hearing tonight on general development guidelines only for the proposed 81-acre Alliance Business Center at the southwest corner of Indiana 49 and County Road 950N.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the town hall.

The commissionís hearing will be on a planned-unit-development ordinance that sets out in broad terms the conditions that would govern site development on the parcel. The commission will forward a recommendation to the Town Council for final action on the PUD.

Once approved, the project will return to the commission for platting, at which time the actual business center layout and design will be determined.

A spokesman for the projectís investors said they are working on finding tenants for the light industrial/commercial park, which tentatively may include retail and a condominium component.

Also listed on tonightís agenda is discussion regarding updated signage rules and business uses in the Business-1 and 2 zones, although the matter repeatedly has been postponed previously.
