The Westfield Plan Commission failed to reach a consensus on Monday with a 4-4 vote on Pulte Homes’ proposal for a new neighborhood around the Wood Wind Golf Course in Westfield, Indiana. The Commission has forwarded the development plan to the City Council, who will consider the proposal next Monday.
Pulte’s proposal plan includes 1,007 homes, 224 apartment units, and 200,000 square feet of retail space, set to be built over a 12-year span on about 800 acres around the 18-hole golf course, which would remain open as a public amenity.
Earlier plans proposed building a 315-home subdivision on the golf course land, which were scrapped due to community backlash. Some community members have crafted a proposal to limit development on the golf course or surrounding land, which has not advanced.
In response to resident concerns, Pulte has modified its original plans in order to reduce density, add green space, and protect the golf course itself from redevelopment.
