Apr. 8—TIPTON — A major mixed-use development targeted at travelers along U.S. 31 is being proposed for the southeast corner of the intersection of the highway and Indiana 28 in Tipton County.
According to a concept plan presented by Matt Skelton, a lawyer at Church, Church, Hittle and Antrim representing the developers, Thursday night to the Tipton County Plan Commission, the development would include one or more hotels, a bank, light industrial, a travel plaza, a MedCheck, recreational vehicle stopover, restaurants and a dog park.
The development is seeking to rezone the 71.25-acre property from agriculture to a planned unit development (PUD). The Commission voted 6-0, with new board member Jeremy Bennett abstaining, to give the rezoning request a favorable recommendation to the Tipton County Board of Commissioners, who will have the final say on the rezoning request.
