Lake County's formerly derailed Wellness Way development plan for a 25-plus square-mile chunk of Southeast Lake County appears to be back on the rails.
The list included things such as failure to identify adequate potable water for the project and the county's agreement to allow already approved developments in the area to continue as planned and not comply with the new plan.
It also found fault with what it called the lack of defining minimum and maximum development density or intensity. Instead, it had set an average density for development.
There were other complaints by the state as well including fault found with open space guidelines, promotion of modes of transportation beyond cars, and not "emphasizing an urban form for functional place-making."
Jim Karr, one of the landowners who contributed to the cost of creating the plan said he was relieved with the proposed state settlement agreement.
"I'm happy to see it moving again," he said.
