TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - The Area Plan Commission has recommended approval of a rezone for a proposed subdivision in Dayton. This comes after the commission heard from both supporters and those in against it.

Wednesday night's public hearing lasted more than two hours. There were 31 letters read out loud and several people spoke both for and against the proposal.


The plans call for 110 homes, south of town off Dayton Road.

The Dayton Town Council voted to annex the land for the proposed subdivision last summer.

Supporters said they welcome growth and think it will be good for businesses in town.

"The proposed subdivision will add value to Dayton, financially and culturally. The long history of the developer and builders in providing high-quality homes in this county is well known and we welcome their vision in Dayton," said Dave Leininger.

Those against it said they are concerned about added traffic and worry about having to pay to expand utilities to the area.

"We know our town better than anyone and we value its uniqueness. We believe our town is worth fighting for. We do not want this rezone until it is bound to an appropriate plan that complements our small-town charm," said Jennifer Manago.

In a 12-1 vote, the Area Plan Commission recommended approval. That recommendation will be sent to the Dayton Town Council.

The town council meets on the first Monday of every month at 7:00 p.m.

News 18 will continue to follow the process as it unfolds.
