APC Approves Two Plats, Two Rezonings
By Phoebe Muthart
All the cases were approved at the regular monthly meeting of the Kosciusko County Area Plan Commission Wednesday, Nov. 2.
During the brief meeting, two final plats were approved. Both are subdivisions. Developer Greg Stump’s plat is 2 acres and is located on CR 650E in Warsaw. It is a two-lot, residential subdivision.
Chet Wortinger’s plat is located on CR 450N on the north side of Irish Lake in North Webster. It is 4.6 acres.
Dr. Larry Allen’s petition to rezone his property in Syracuse from a commercial district to a residential district was given a favorable recommendation by the board. The property is located on the north side of Harrison Street, 340 feet west of Indiana Avenue in Turkey Creek Township. The property is less than 1/2 acre. If approved, there will be two entrances, one off of SR 13.
“They’ve met all the requirements,” said APC Director Matt Sandy.
Allen’s case will be heard at Syracuse Town Council’s meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15.
Donald and Carolyn McCulloch’s petition to rezone ground from a residential district to an agricultural district was also given a favorable recommendation. The property, which is 140 acres, is located on the south side of CR 1300N, west of Bishop Road in Turkey Creek Township, adjacent to Wawasee Airport.
Don is a farmer, said Steve Snyder, the McCullochs’ attorney. He said the intent is to farm.
“We need the United States Department of Agriculture’s farm number (to do so),” he said.
The case will be heard at the county commissioner’s meeting at 9:15 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 22.
The next APC meeting is at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7, at the county courthouse in Warsaw.
