Resident Comments Sought on Future of Property on Nagel Road

Anderson Township Trustees are proceeding with selling a 3-acre parcel on Nagel Road, but before doing so, are seeking feedback on possible future uses for the site. 

The property, on the west side of Nagel Road immediately south of Stonegate Drive, will be sold as a part of an ongoing effort to dispose of land that does not factor into the township’s long-term plan, noted Steve Sievers, assistant administrator of operations. 

Anderson has owned the property and adjacent land for several decades, with the original intent to expand its Operations Center campus and access from the site to Nagel Road. Those expansion plans have shifted due in large part to state budget cuts; thus, it has remained vacant. With nearby recreational and open space amenities, and as it no longer fits into the township’s projected need for public services, the decision is being made to sell the property. 

In recent years, the Mayerson Company, which owns Stonegate Apartments, indicated an interest in part of property to offer high-end rental housing, a need identified in the township’s planning studies. Earlier this year, 5.7 acres of the original 15-acre site was approved for a multifamily housing development, and will be sold to the Mayerson Company for a third phase of their development that will include 120 new units in two buildings. 

Sievers notes that the township plans to sell the last almost three acres for a “use that is compatible with the surrounding area.” Nearby development includes the Sea of Smiles Dentistry and Forestville Baptist  Church. “We recognize the public’s interest in the future use of this site and we encourage residents to weigh in on a positive direction for this parcel,” Sievers said. 

Township planners have indicated three conceptual options will be considered:

  • Single family, a small subdivision of five or six single-family detached home sites – Concept Image Click HERE 
  • Single family “planned unit development” consisting of 10-12 homes (possibly some attached) with single story floor plans - Concept Image Click HERE
  • Up to a 10,000 square-foot office building, likely for a medical or professional use – Concept Image Click HERE
