What happened: The council heard public comment regarding Springmill Trails planned unit development and the Gristmill Crossing development.

What it means: The floor was opened to the public at 7:23 p.m. Among the commenters was Courtney Shelton of Westfield. She raised concerns that the proposed use of one of the lots as a car dealership would disrupt the character of Westfield.

“My husband and I moved here for the town-feel,” Shelton said. “I believe a dealership would completely change the environment over in that area.”

The plan will return as an agenda item. If it is approved, it will be passed along to the city council with a favorable recommendation.
