Proposals for two large commercial areas north of the new Parkview Regional Medical Center drew strong opposition from would-be neighbors at a public hearing Thursday.

About 60 people packed the Allen County Plan Commission meeting, most in opposition to two projects on Union Chapel Road near Diebold Road – the first proposals near the new Union Chapel/Interstate 69 interchange.

GJHL Properties LLC wants to build Providence Place on about 37 acres on the south sides of the 4000 to 4300 blocks of Diebold, with a shopping center of about 76,000 square feet and five out lots. The Center at Union Chapel by Union Chapel Development LLC in the 3700 block would be even larger, with its 42 acres including a shopping center of 164,000 square feet, a four-story hotel, and three other sites for such things as a restaurant, fitness center and shops.

Opponents cited traffic, noise, lighting, decreased property values and other concerns. The commission did not vote on the projects Thursday.

According to Plan Commission documents, the Providence Place site includes 42 acres east of the proposed development that could be used for a school. The identity of the school was not mentioned Thursday, but Blackhawk Christian School officials have confirmed to The News-Sentinel that they are considering an expansion in the Parkview area.
