Common Council Approves Rezoning for Retirement Community
By: Colin Meadowcroft - Tuesday, August 4, 2020

ANGOLA, IN - The Angola Common Council finalized a rezoning for a retirement community.

The Angola Common Council approved the final reading to rezone a property from single family residential or R2 to a high-density multiple family residential district or R5. The property is located from Westview Drive onto both Meyers and Koehlinger Streets to make way for the development of a single level senior living community.

The rezoning approval was delayed waiting for a written commitment from the developer that there would only be a single level retirement community built on the land.

Wastewater superintendent Craig Williams reported a continuation in testing the wastewater supply for COVID-19 that has been taking place since March. The testing will continue for another 12 weeks and will now branch out to the collection system that services MSD and Trine University. The testing will occur three days per week and may be able to identify an outbreak before it is identified by the health care system.

The Indiana Finance Authority helped identify the testing as eligible for funding from the coronavirus relive act.

The Angola Common Council will meet again on Monday, August 17, 2020.
