AVON — After several delays, a major new project in Hendricks County is moving forward.

On Thursday evening, the Avon Town Council approved the development on Dan Jones Road, near Avon North Middle School, will include apartments, a senior living center and storage units.

Several neighbors are not happy with the decision because they're worried about property values declining.

"Brand new developments are not good for people who have an investment in their home," Lowell Jackson said. "They keep them up, they keep the yard mowed, they put gardens in."

Opponents are also worried about traffic problems.

Some people at the meeting spoke in favor of the project.
