Controversial Union Chapel project withdrawn

Friday, August 15, 2014 - 12:01 am

A proposed 42-acre commercial development in the 3700 block of Union Chapel Road has been withdrawn after stiff opposition from neighbors. The Center at Union Chapel would have included a 164,000-square-foot shopping center, four-story hotel and three other development sites, but officials with Union Chapel Development LLC told the Allen County Plan Commission Thursday they would not move ahead with the project. Opponents had voiced concerns about traffic, noise, lighting and other issues.
