It’s rare that the
president of the Chesterton Advisory Plan Commission and the petitioners
before it both have the same last name, but it happened last week and has
led to confusion.
Feb. 20 president
George Stone chaired the commission as it conducted a preliminary hearing on
a proposed 25-lot subdivision being developed by Bill and Marci Stone.
At one point George
Stone said the petitioners’ subdivision covenants appear to be detailed and
restrictive. “It seems like it would make it a cute, cookie-cutter
development,” he stated.
Because the Feb. 21
article in The Chesterton Tribune identified the speaker only as
“Stone” on second reference, Marci Stone said some people believe it was her
or Bill who made the comment. “It’s in no way going to be a cookie-cutter
development,” she stressed Tuesday, because Stone Meadows is intended to be
immediately followed the George Stone statement in the article, but Marci
Stone asked for further clarification because the Plan Commission will
conduct a public hearing on the subdivision March 20.
regrets any confusion that may have resulted.
