TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - A highly controversial proposed subdivision in Dayton was approved by the Tippecanoe County Area Plan Commission. 

Wednesday night, the APC approved the Baker Farms subdivision. The subdivision is expected to be located on the east side of Dayton.

The subdivision will include 109 lots plus five outlots. As News 18 previously reported, Dayton annexed the 60-acre land last July and passed a rezone in March.

During Wednesday's meeting, many people voiced their concerns about the future of the town. Those against it said the subdivision is not economically friendly and the developers did not communicate clearly, especially about utilities.

Developers responded by saying Dayton residents have proper knowledge about the proposal and added they hope to build an off-site sanitary station.

The subdivision will be filled with more than 100 homes with proposed emergency access roads. Some spoke out about the drainage system while others were worried about their property.

"The drainage concerns that were brought up tonight the developers will be hiring their own drainage crew that will out as engineers," said Dayton Town Board Member Tyrone Taylor. "They have to pass out all that through the drainage board then back to the town of Dayton. It's become a process."

"What I'm worried about is when we get 3-4 inches of rain and the ponds fill up and if it goes over the top it's going to come down the hill," said Gordon Hardebeck, Dayton resident. "And if it comes down the hill it is going to flood our house and once you get your house flooded what are you going to do?"

According to the Dayton ordinance the developers will pay for all utility connections from where they stand in the ground. Also, the subdivision has gone through the safety department and been approved by the fire chief.
