Developers intend Stone Meadows to be upscale

Back To Front Page


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 upscale.

That fact 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.

The Tribune regrets any confusion that may have resulted.
