Chappelle’s publicist Carla Sims informed CNN that the land developers experienced no serious program for reasonably priced housing.
“Neither Dave nor his neighbors are in opposition to affordable housing, on the other hand, they are against the inadequately vetted, cookie-cutter, sprawl-model progress deal which has small regard for the neighborhood, tradition and infrastructure of the Village.”
The council voted in opposition to the significant plans for the housing enhancement and only permitted developing single-family properties on the land. On June 22, WHIO reported that Oberer Land Developers, Ltd had backed out of their options for the land. They also mentioned that Chappelle owned at the very least 19 acres of the land. Sims confirmed that Chappelle owned the land but was unable to validate how a great deal land he’d ordered.
