Plan Commission Approves Rezoning for Residential Area

Two final plats, four preliminary plats and one rezoning petition were approved at the
regular meeting of the Kosciusko County Area Plan Commission Wednesday.

Kyle Coleman’s request to rezone 7 acres from an agricultural district to a residential district was approved. Coleman wants to build a maximum of 15 new homes on the property.

Coleman’s request did draw some concern from nearby residents. Joe Bryant, a nearby
property owner, said there is a wildlife designated area nearby. Also, residents asked
about water issues after heavy rainfalls.

A petition was submitted from neighboring residents who do not want the property rezoned. Despite the opposition, the board voted 9-0 to rezone the property.
