Ephraim Housing Development to Return to Village Committee

The Ephraim Plan Committee will consider the remaining portion of the proposal from Chris Schmeltz and Keith Garrot to construct a housing development on Townline Drive, west of Highway 42. The meeting will be held Tuesday, Sept. 27, 7 pm.

Schmeltz is seeking a conditional-use permit to build 12 homes on the eight-acre parcel zoned Commercial North. The project proposal had also included seven units on an adjacent property, partially zoned Rural Residential, for which Schmeltz sought a conditional-use permit for a Planned Residential Development. The plan committee denied that proposal in August.
