COUNCIL APPROVES CHESTER BOULEVARD TOWN HOMES

(Richmond, IN)--Some new town homes are coming to Chester Boulevard in Richmond.  Common Council on Monday night gave unanimous approval to rezoning a part of the 1900 block to allow for construction.  It will begin with five two-family town homes, but there could be more.  "The petitioner has stated that, should the market support Phase 1, that it's likely that five additional homes could be added as a Phase 2," said Richmond's city planner.  Some nearby residents feared wind turbines could be part of the plan, but council was told Monday night that has not been discussed.
