The first phase of the Coughlin’s Crossing development will move forward after City Council approved it on Monday.
Council approved the final development plan and subdivision plat for Phase 1 of the project at the more than 77-acre site, located north of Meeker Way between Stratford Road and U.S. 23.
The plans are only for infrastructure, a fact that city planning director, Dave Efland, said was unusual.
Coughlin’s Crossing will be a mixed-use development consisting of commercial, office and residential uses complemented with green space and parking.
Council approved the preliminary plans in December.
Some residents expressed minor concerns with the site’s current condition such as tall grass near the Jane Barn and House, the clearing of about half of the area’s trees and placement of some utilities.
Connie Klema, the developer, said she would address those concerns and mentioned she’s had meetings with neighbors in the area hosted by the Delaware County Historical Society.
