Back To Front Page



The Chesterton Advisory Plan Commission conducted a preliminary hearing on primary plat approval for a duplex development at South Fifth Street and 1100N at its meeting Thursday night.

Kathryn Cochran c/o Brett Carney is seeking primary plat approval for eight duplexes on the property, which is zoned medium density residential. There would be four entrances to the development and a small frontage road.

The Commission scheduled a public hearing for primary plat approval at its next meeting, March 15.

Eagle Crossing

In other business, the Commission heard more about the Eagle Crossing upscale apartment complex being built at Coffee Creek Center by In Good Company Property Management.

The company has been coordinating with Town Engineer Mark O’Dell to amend the planned unit development to accommodate a pipeline, owned by Buckeye, which runs through the property. Although the amendment wouldn’t change the number of parking spaces, the spaces are planned as angled instead of perpendicular and a few spaces for parallel parking have been added.

In reviewing the PUD, O’Dell pointed out that a temporary entrance that was supposed to become a fire lane after development is now slated to be a permanent one-way-in entrance. In Good Company will have to amend the PUD again to reflect that change.
