Goshen Common Council members have said “no” to a zoning change needed for a proposed apartment complex on the former Western Rubber brownfield site.

WVPE reports the $31 million Ariel Cycleworks project features more than 130 apartments and 5,000 square feet of commercial space and a connection to the 9th Street bicycle greenway.

With the property designated as a brownfield site, the development also incorporates extensive green infrastructure and stormwater infrastructure.

Though proper approval was given to set up a special tax financing district and the city’s planning commission had already given approval for the zoning change, the common council has voted down the zoning change after hearing concerns from resident ranging from increased traffic and parking issues.

There is a possibility the developers could amend their plans are resubmit them to city leaders.
