The Vincennes City Council could play yet another big role in developing downtown at their meeting tonight.
You’ve heard a lot about potential apartments being built along First Street in Vincennes. That project is one that architects with Myszak and Palmer have been pursuing for quite some time. The riverfront lofts would consist of multiple stories of apartments, with the ground floor being offered to area businesses as retail space. Andy Myszak appeared before the Area Plan Commission last week to get their approval for the area where grain silos currently stand to be rezoned from light industrial to central business, a requirement for the proposed housing and retail space to be built.
The APC gave their approval, contingent on the architectural firm being awarded funding by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority. The application for that funding is due in November, and the money is expected to be awarded in February of next year.
The last step in the zoning process comes tonight as the City Council will have their opportunity to approve the rezoning.
