Plans date to Oct. 6, 2015. The property is 6.8 acres and includes the former Barton Elementary School, 630 School Place, which will be remodeled into apartments.
Plan Commission member Sara Fleischman asked to see actual masonry on the lower band of the townhomes and by the doors. “We promised the neighbors we would keep an eye on the quality and aesthetics of these buildings and I feel pretty strong about that,” she said.
The developer agreed to the change.
Construction should start in January 2019.
