Some in small town oppose planned subdivisionJuly 24, 2018

DAYTON — Some residents in a small northern Indiana town aren’t happy with a planned subdivision that would bring more than 100 new homes to their community.
Streets in the Tippecanoe County town of Dayton, just east of Lafayette, are dotted with signs reading “Keep Dayton Small.”
The Journal & Courier reports some locals worry the planned 109 homes will be the beginning of the end of small-town life in their community of about 1,600 residents.
A local planning commission unanimously approved the development last week, but Dayton resident Cindy Marsh continues fighting to halt the project that would be a half-mile from her and her husband’s home.
She’s hoping a lawsuit she filed last year can stall the project long enough to give voters a chance to weigh in next year.
