Sylvan Township Hall

By Lisa Carolin

Housing starts are on the increase in Sylvan Township and many more are expected in 2018.

That was part of Carol Konieczki, Sylvan Township Zoning and Planning Administrator’s report that she shared at the Jan. 9 Sylvan Township Board meeting.

Konieczki said there were 40 Zoning Compliance permits issued in 2017 of which 15 were new homes.

As far as current projects go, she said Chelsea Hillcrest Final Site plans have been submitted but the terms of the conditional approval of the preliminary site plan have not yet been met. St. Louis Center Phase 1 of the Guanella Village is underway, and Phase 1 of Westchester Farms is underway with 23 homes proposed. Konieczki said that Norfolk Development has received such a good response, that it anticipates moving forward with site plans for Phase II of Westchester Farms in 2018.

Westchester Farms, which is located off Cavanaugh Lake Road, plans 10 phases and a total of 300 homes. As many as 14 homes have been presold and the plan is to start building the model very soon.

The board unanimously passed Resolution 18-01, which allows taxpayers to protest in writing. Also passed was a new contract with Infrastructure Alternatives, Inc, which has been the township’s operations company since 2011.

Because Sylvan Township’s Citizen of the Year could not be at the Jan. 9 meeting, that announcement will be delayed until the board’s February meeting.
