GOSHEN - The stormwater dispute in the Keystone Square development on Goshen's southeast side is over, at least as far as the city's involvement.

The Board of Public Works and Safety and Stormwater voted Monday, Feb. 24 to deny Linda Clark's appeal of the stormwater acceptance for a construction project that will bring a Michiana Eye Center office to the city.

The board also granted approval for the post-construction plan for the project.

Windshire Corp. is working with Michiana Eye Center to build the office but was held up by an Clark's appeal.

Clark, a neighboring property owner, had concerns about the drainage plan for the project and the timing of when permits were filed.

City attorney Larry Barkes said the city had what they needed to proceed with their approval - a cross-access agreement with the developer - and therefore could allow the project to move forward without any liability.

There are still several issues to be dealt with between the Clark and the developer, he conceded, but those are private disagreements that the city has no jurisdiction over.

Asked after the board meeting, Clark said she was unsure about what her next step will be.
