What happened: The APC held a public hearing for Belmont Woods, 16575 Carey Rd.

What it means:  David Weekley Homes is proposing for a change of zoning to a single-family district to allow for 27 lots across 16.56 acres. There were no written comments prior to the meeting, and only one person spoke who expressed concern regarding expansion and the effect it would have on drains. However, most drains are in the common areas of the proposal, which would not be expanded into. Steve Hardin, an attorney with Faegre Baker Daniels, said those most likely would not be affected. The homes would be set between the $450,000 and $500,000 price range. David Weekley Homes also has built in Oak Manor, Harmony and Shady Nook at Grassy Branch neighborhoods in Westfield. After the public hearing, the plan commission forwarded the proposal to city council with a 7-0 vote.
