The rezoning has been in the works for a while now, but it took till now to become official.
This all stems back five years ago when there was talk for an apartment complex for seniors aged 55 and up in Auburn. While there is little outward signs of progress, with this approval of rezoning, that may well change soon.
The city first began discussing plans for Park Place Apartments in February 2006 and construction was at one time set to begin in 2008. But due to some key changes in Kentucky Housing applications, and other issues, the complex was put on hold.
Once the rezoning gets approved by the county, it shouldn’t take long for the entire complex to finally be put into production.
The complex will contain one and two bedroom apartments, and will be for those ages 55 and older and on a limited income. Rent will vary depending on income and will include water, sewer and trash pick up. Roche has said one apartment will be designed for someone who is handicapped, and another for someone who is sight impaired.
Now that the rezoning has been approved by the city council, progress should move along quickly.
