TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A wedding and events venue is one step closer to being built in Tippecanoe County. The proposed plan brought some controversy to Wednesday night's Board of Zoning Appeals meeting.
The facility will go in on the east side of County Road 800 East, just northeast of Dayton.
The building will be available to rent from Thursdays through Sundays. The family building and running the facility says the rural look goes with the area.
However, some neighbors have concerns about traffic and noise.
"I just want to assure people that we are wanting to provide something to the community to complement that area," said one of the owners, Robin Humphrey.
At least three people spoke in opposition of the proposed venue. One person was John Spitznagle, who has lived and farmed in the area for many years.
"Traffic, the lights, the noise, this is farm community this is not made for this stuff," said Spitznagle.
The venue along with a parking lot will sit on a little more than 13 acres of land.
