TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A stop work order put a hold on Cobblestone Crossings construction Thursday morning.
The decision was made after Vigo County Commissioners asked Vigo County Area Planning to issue a stop work order but not everyone was satisfied with the outcome.
As of 6:00 a.m., the stop work order forced workers to put down their tools.
But some surrounding homeowners of Cobblestone told a News 10 crew that as of Thursday morning, the workers were still on sight
According to Rick Wheeler, Woodgate Homeowner, some workers were still making adjustments to the Cobblestone apartments.
Vigo County Commissioner Judy Anderson said Area Planning allowed Cobblestone to winterize and protect their vacant apartments.
"It's not going to just cease and everybody's just going to walk off the property at that time. You have to allow them the courtesy of buttoning up so to speak," said Anderson.
When Wheeler first heard about the stop work order, he said, "My first initial thought was celebrating but then when you get into the details of the stop work order such as we're finding now, it's not necessarily a stop work order. Well, we can proceed as long as were winterizing or protecting the property. "
Anderson said workers are not allowed to build but can put-up doors and windows and there's no-deadline as to when the workers have to have their winterizing done.
Anderson also said it could be awhile before work could continue, possibly not until November considering Cobblestone would have to go before Area Planning once again to get a zoning change approved.
