TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The battle between Cobblestone developers and Woodgate was one over safety, security, and privacy.
The compromise: a wall built along the property line they share.
Now, as a sign from Vigo County Area Planning indicates, Cobblestone developers have turned their efforts south towards a property line they share with resident of the Viscaya Point subdivision.
Stacy Gough has lived here for 8 years.
"We chose this location because it had nice landscaping, it's one way in and one way out, small community of 15 houses, very neighborly,” said Gough, who is also a realtor.
The concerns Gough has with Cobblestone are similar to the ones shown by her Woodgate neighbors. But for Gough the story is more personal.
A couple of years ago, she said she came home to find an intoxicated woman soaking in her hot tub. And the woman said she came from Cobblestone.
"That was a little freaky,” Gough recalled. “Thank God for my dog. He was the one who alerted us that someone was here in the hot tub and trying to get into the house."
That's why Gough and her neighbors in Viscaya want a wall similar to the one built along the Woodgate property line. She says that's the only solution that can give her and her neighbors the security they seek.
"We’re trying to be good neighbors and handle this in a professional manner, but we would also feel that we would also like the wall back here on Viscaya due to safety and security reasons and the value of our homes,” she summarized.
News 10 spoke with the Vigo County Area Planning Department about this and they said Cobblestone's property in question is zoned for two-story apartment buildings.
Cobblestone will seek final approval to build near Viscaya Point on September 4th's Area Plan Commission meeting.
