Town Council could revisit tabled 1100N annexation at meeting Monday night

Back To Front Page


The Chesterton Town Council will meet at 7 p.m. Monday, July 13, at the town hall.

All attendees must wear masks and social-distancing will be required.

At Monday’s meeting, members could revisit an annexation petition tabled more than a year ago: the petition of PSR LLC to annex 59 acres immediately south of 1100N, mostly west of 23rd Street and across the street from Dogwood Park, but also adjacent to the Stone Meadows subdivision. At the council’s last meeting, PSR attorney Greg Babcock asked the council to un-table the petition, originally tabled in the final days of 2018, after neighbors at Stone Meadows, Rosehill Estates, and Dogwood Estates made clear their opposition to PSR’s plans for a mixed-use planned unit development including not only duplexes and triplexes but a pair of commercial buildings.

In fact the council rejected Babcock’s request to un-table the petition, citing their promise to neighbors to give them every opportunity to hear for themselves PSR’s plans and to comment on them.

Babcock did say at the last meeting that the duplexes and triplexes have been eliminated from the plans, that all residential units will be single-family, and that if PSR opts to pursue the construction of the two commercial buildings, it will have to go through the PUD process before the Advisory Plan Commission.

Other items on Monday’s agenda:

-- A request from the Duneland Chamber of Commerce to re-schedule the twice postponed Corkscrew & Brew event.

-- A petition from Odisei Miron for a right-of-way agreement on Center Street in Crocker.

-- A petition from Tammy Symmes for a vacation of a public right of way at 723 S. Jackson Blvd.
