What happened: The council unanimously approved 290 units and an office building for former Marsh site.

  • What it means: The project takes place on 9.8 acres at 17901 River Rd., the former site for Marsh. Approximately 7.8 acres will be used to construct a luxury apartment complex with 290 units, mostly comprised of one and two bedrooms and some studios. The apartment building will be 4 stories tall, and it is within walking distance to Federal Hill Commons and trails. The remaining 2 acres will be used for an office building to be constructed at a later date, after the construction of the apartments.

What happened: The council unanimously approved a request to establish a planned development on approximately 8 acres at 11411 E. 156th St.

  • What it means: The applicant plans to use the space to construct a residence, an accessory barn for you-pick flowers and conducting classes, tours and field trips related to flower production and flower arranging.

What happened: The council unanimously approved an ordinance for the issuance and sale of bonds for the purpose of providing funds to be used for certain capital projects.

  • What it means: City CFO and controller Jeff Spalding presented the proposal to the council.
    “This is our second year of what I am anticipating becoming a routine cycle where we will be doing a short-term capital project bond, a one-year bond, that helps us manage the city’s property tax rate,” Spalding said. The bonds, which will not exceed $5.3 million, will go to various capital projects around the city including Firestone redevelopment, Hobbs Station, Stony Creek Trail under Ind. 37, downtown improvements, a pedestrian bridge on Little Chicago Road, roundabouts at Ind. 32/Ind. 38 and Ind. 32/River Road and a trail on South 10th Street.
