A development company wants to build a large subdivision on a 90-acre plot of farm land in Aboite Township in southwest Fort Wayne.
Oakmont Development Company, LLC has petitioned the Allen County Plan Commission to approve a primary plat for a 148-lot single family residential subdivision on the east side of West Hamilton Road South, north of The Chapel church and across from Woodside Middle School. Named Mercato, the subdivision would sit between West Hamilton Road and Sycamore Hills, and share an entrance with The Chapel.
The land is already zoned R3 Multiple Family Residential but is used agriculturally.
A public hearing on the planned development will be held Thursday at 1 p.m. in Room 035 of Citizens Square at 200 E. Berry St.
