Some Terre Haute homeowners are still fighting to save their property values by stopping the construction of some new apartment buildings.
Several neighborhoods that surround Cobblestone Crossings apartment complex are fighting to prevent almost 30-foot tall apartments from being built-up against their yards.
Tuesday several angry homeowners addressed Vigo County Commissioners about a re-zoning that never received final approval.
The changes all started in 2005 when the land that is currently being built on was zoned as an R1 which is for single family homes.
The plan was approved by Vigo County Area Planning and Vigo County Commissioners but in 2007 the land was re-zoned to an R2 which allowed multi-family living or apartment buildings.
Some neighbors told News 10 that based on a recorded meeting; Area Planning approved the re-zoning but never included the commissioners or informed the community.
Mike Poinsett, a Woodgate homeowner says "Mr. Wright admitted that a major zoning change has to go back in-front of the commissioners as did Judy Anderson. All I did today to clear up the air is state only facts that were either from the Area Planning meeting minutes or from the Vigo County Ordinance Law. I did no speculation today."
Lisa Shahar, a Woodgate homeowner says, "We've been lied to but I also think that things were done the same old way by the same people that always do things in Terre Haute behind the back and not up front and bingo now they got caught, red handed."
When News 10 asked the Area Planning Commission about the Cobblestone Crossings' apartments, officials said that they did the right thing when it came to approving re-zoned areas.
Jeremy Weir, Executive Director of Vigo County Area Planning Commission says, "They exceeded out what they had for uses permitted in their original plan for June development. We made them come forward and request an additional modification for more R2 to be allocation in that June development and that did go before the commissioners and was approved."
Weir and Area Planning's attorney both agreed to meet with the concerned homeowners but when the commissioners were asked whether or not they voted on the final re-zoning, the commissioners told News 10 that they were advised by the county attorney to not respond.
News 10 has yet to receive a call back from the owner of cobblestone crossings.
