Sugarcreek Twp. delays vote on Oberer homes after 3 hours of debate

After hearing concerns among residents Monday night, trustees in Sugarcreek Twp. delayed a decision on a rezoning request that would lead to new homes by Oberer Land Developers.

Residents crowded into the township’s building on Ferry Road as trustees were expected to vote on whether to allow the rezoning of approximately 85 acres in the area of Wilmington Dayton and Conference roads.

The meeting started at 7 p.m. and after three hours of residents’ testimonies during the public hearing, trustees voted to table the issue until the March 4 meeting, according to Trustee Nadine Daugherty.

“There were a lot of good points made and the meeting went long,” Daugherty said. “We want to address their concerns, but it got late so we decided to continue deliberations until our next meeting.”

Daugherty said she shares many of the residents’ concerns regarding the proposed housing density on the property.
