Subdivision approved by town council

FORTVILLE —The Fortville Town Council approved the 247-home Wyndstone East subdivision development Monday, paving the way for the 86-acre development on the northeast side of town.

Harvey Construction, a Noblesville-based developer, plans to build a mix of ranch-style and two-story homes from 1,200 and 2,000 square feet in size at the site between State Road 67 and Ohio Street. Arbor Homes is the builder.

The developer presented its plans to the town at its mid-July meeting, but the council had some concerns, which have been addressed, president Bill Hiday said.

The adjustments included improvements to lighting, landscaping and pedestrian walkways.

“We gave them some marching orders, and they complied,” Hiday said.

The development is an expansion of the existing 50-home Wyndstone neighborhood.

Dennis Olmstead, who’s serving as a surveyor for the development, previously said homes will be built in sets of between 30 and 40, but that could change based on demand.

The development will include 14 acres of green space — including a park — sidewalks and a homeowner’s association.

Homes will feature brick and vinyl siding and are expected to be priced from $130,000 to $180,000.

Once completed, Wyndstone will be the largest residential development in Fortville.
