Property rezoned for apartments

Lebanon — A possible error in the city’s comprehensive plan caused a bit of contention at Monday’s Lebanon City Council meeting as council members voted to rezone a piece of property at County Road 250 North and Indiana 39.

The property is owned by Shaker Square Apartments, which had planned to build a new complex there. Mike Giese, with Shaker Square, was surprised one day to find the property had be changed from a multi-family zoning to commercial.

“For one reason or another, we simply believe it was a mistake, the zone map had been changed and zoned our property to a commercial classification,” said Mike Andreoli, attorney representing Shaker Square, at the meeting. “The only thing we can think of is that it was done in error.”

The apartments would not be considered a commercial development, and therefore could not be built there if the zoning remained commercial.

Planning Director Charlie Campbell said the rezone of this property makes sense and is supported by the city’s comprehensive plan.

“I really do think it was a mistake,” he said. “But we support this because it does fit in with our comprehensive plans and future land use maps.”
