CEDAR LAKE — The Plan Commission got a second look at a proposal for a new telecommunications facility in Cedar Lake during its final meeting of the year.
Branch Towers III LLC of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is looking to build its facility at 7000 139th Place, on property owned by KaLee Veldkamp. The property is located at the end of 139th Place, east of Cedar Creek and the lakefront.
Branch Towers submitted a site plan, but plan commissioners told the company it would have to wait until the proposal gets a favorable recommendation of a variance of use from the town’s Board of Zoning Appeals before the planning board can act on it.
Use variances are recommended by the BZA but must be taken up by the Town Council for final consideration.
The Plan Commission also earlier in the month reviewed a preliminary plat and a concept plan. Summer Winds, under development by Waterford Place, of Schererville, is a 73-lot subdivision. The company is seeking a preliminary plat, which means the project is in an early stage of development.
Armani Development also unveiled a concept plan for a new building in Lincoln Plaza. The concept plan is only that, a concept; the company would have to return with a fully developed plan to be considered. The building would be between Strack and Van Til and True Value Hardware and measure 24,600 square feet, plus 145 parking spaces.
