City signs off on next phase of Twin Lakes

By JOHN WALKER - jwalker@shelbynews.com

A subdivision on Shelbyville’s southeast side continues to grow.

On Tuesday, the city’s Board of Works signed off on a map of the development site.

“I’ve got Twin Lakes Apartments’ Phase 2 plat,” Bryant Niehoff, director of the Shelbyville Plan Commission, told the board during its premeeting.

Twin Lakes lies on the east side of Amos Road north of McKay Road and just south of Loper Drive.

At the Board of Works regular meeting immediately following the premeeting, Niehoff explained that the next phase included extending Twin Lakes Boulevard.

When the extension is complete, the new roadway will connect Amos and McKay Roads, forming a complete route through the subdivision.

Board of Works member Bob Williams asked Niehoff about speed limit signs, and he replied they will be included.

Twin Lakes LLC has been developing the large site for several years; the subdivision includes apartments and single-family homes.

In other matters, Niehoff told the board about a home at 747 Colescott St., at the corner of Colescott and Quesada Streets, which he said has become a nuisance property.

The homeowners were contacted previously, and in February seemed to be making progress cleaning up the location, but work has since stopped. He’ll ask the owners to come before the board, Niehoff said.

“That will be coming in the next week or so,” he said.

Shelbyville Mayor Tom DeBaun indicated he was familiar with the property and owners, and told Niehoff to see if he could get in touch with their daughter to help out.

The city plans also to contact social services to get assistance for the homeowners.
