Editorial: New housing plan bodes well for city

Seymour Common Council recently approved first reading of an ordinance that would rezone nearly 80 acres of farmland for two housing projects on the city’s north side.

We’ll hope the plan sails through final reading on Monday. The developments — called The Meadows — should be good for the city and its future.

The property, which was annexed into the city last year, is southeast of Trinity Lutheran High School and west of the Martha’s Vineyard subdivision. The land is bordered by Burkart Boulevard, O’Brien Street and County Road 700N, also known as Enos Road.
