1:30 p.m. 32A04-1312-PL-606 . Brookview Properties, LLC and First Merchants Bank of Central Indiana petitioned the Town of Plainfield for approval of a Planned Unit Development ("PUD") preliminary plan and final detailed plan regarding a proposed apartment complex. The Plainfield Plan Commission denied that petition following a public hearing. Brookview and First Merchants filed a verified petition for judicial review, and the trial court affirmed the Plan Commission's denial of the development plans. Brookview and First Merchants appeal the trial court's judgment in favor of the Plan Commission and raise the following consolidated and restated issues for our review: whether the Plan Commission exceeded its authority when it denied the petition; whether the Plan Commission's findings are inadequate; whether the Plan Commission's decision violated their rights to due process; and whether the Plan Commission's decision constituted a taking in violation of the United States and Indiana constitutions.

  1. why is the State trying to play GOD? Automatic sealing of a record is immoral. People should have the right to decide how to handle a record. the state is playing GOD. I have searched for decades, then you want me to pay someone a huge price to contact my son. THIS is extortion and gestapo control. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW.

  2. I haven't made some of the best choices in the last two years I have been to marion county jail 1 and two on three different occasions each time of release dates I've spent 48 to 72 hours after date of release losing a job being denied my freedom after ordered please help

  3. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation."

  4. This is why it is important to consider Long term care insurance. For you and for your loved ones

  5. I am terrified to see Fracking going on not only in Indiana but in Knox county. Water is the most important resource we have any where. It will be the new gold, and we can't live without it and we can live without gold. How ignorant are people?
