LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A request involving proposed low-income apartments on Lafayette's south side has been put on hold.
The plans call for 248 units in 17 buildings off Elston Road, near U.S. 231.
The developers, Herman and Kittle Properties, were before the Area Plan Commission Wednesday night. They are seeking approval to subdivide the property.
The commission decided to continue the request.
Lafayette's City Attorney Ed Chosenk said the mayor, the city council and the board of works are not behind the project, especially because of how close it is to other low-income housing.
"It concentrates low-income, subsidized housing in an area, which already has extra need for police services and other services," said Chosnek.
The developers declined to talk to News 18 at the meeting.
The issue will come back to the area plan commission next month.
