After about 14 hours of testimony and overwhelming opposition to the annexation and rezoning, the village of Elwood’s planning and zoning commission took a vote on January 17th shortly before midnight. They ultimately voted to recommend the annexation and rezoning of 851 acres, petitioned by Northpoint Development, to the village board. This is merely a recommendation; the village board will make the final decision on whether or not to approve or deny the annexation and rezoning. That hearing date is TBD.
Motion & 2nd — Commissioner Doug Vaughn and Thomas Nagel
- Commissioner Jake Fanning — NO
- Commissioner Thomas Nagel — YES
