GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) – A Greenwood group who pushed back against a gas station on the southeast side of the city is now fighting another project.
The group “Concerned Citizens of Southeast Greenwood” plans to fight a proposed apartment complex, according to 24-Hour News 8’s partners at the Daily Journal.
The 29-acre piece of property east of Sheek Road is zoned for a subdivision that could include about 100 houses. That’s near Stop 18 Road.
A developer has expressed interested in buying the land to build 30 apartment buildings with about 300 units. Neighbors say they’re concerned about additional traffic and about a high-density apartment complex lowering their property value.
In order to buy the property and build the apartments, the land will have to be rezoned. If the proposal is approved by the plan commission, the city council also would have to approve the rezoning.
The council member who represents the southeast area of Greenwood says he will vote against the rezoning.
In September, more than 100 residents fought against a proposed gas station at Worthsville and Sheek roads. That’s across from Clark-Pleasant Intermediate School. The city is still building the station but it now won’t connect to neighborhood streets.
