Caramore subdivision proposed for Westfield


The Westfield City Council heard an introduction to the Caramore Planned Unit Development at its Sept. 14 meeting. The subdivision is proposed by Drees Homes and is planned for the northwest quadrant of 199th Street and Horton Road.


The subdivision is proposed on 40 acres, and Matt Skelton, a partner with the law firm Church, Church, Hittle & Antrim, said it will largely resemble Wilshire, a subdivision on 156th Street west of Springmill Road, also built by Drees Homes.

“(Caramore) is very similar to another neighborhood Drees has constructed here in Westfield,” Skelton said. “They’ve had great success with Wilshire, there are 12 lots remaining, and this proposal would basically be like Wilshire. You could drive through Wilshire today and get a good feel for how that’s going to look and feel.”

The Chatham Hills subdivision is to the north, east and west of the proposed Caramore PUD, and Skelton said the PUD “plugs right in” to the everything else in the area. Caramore will have an extensive trail network.

Since the PUD was only an introduction, no vote was taken. Next, it will appear before the advisory plan commission. For more, visit
