The Goshen City Council on Tuesday tabled a key agreement concerning Lippert Component’s proposed facility, after a number of residents expressed fear of being forced out of their home or snarled in traffic by the industrial development, according to a story in the Elkhart Truth.
The city council tabled a vote util next month on the agreement and on extending utilities to the land, one of several steps needed before the annexation can become official, the articles says.
"It would create a residential donut hole around my home and my home would become worthless overnight," says Diane Yoder, whose property borders the land to be annexed, in the article. "I would rather sell my house and my property than to see my land and house get devoured."
