On Feb. 22, Taft won an appeal preserving an important land use decision reached by the City of Seymour’s board of zoning appeals. BP2 Construction, LLC sought to operate a business that recycles concrete and asphalt fill next to a residential neighborhood. Citing a series of problems caused by situating that industrial use next to a residential neighborhood, the board of zoning appeals denied BP2’s variance application. In a decision tracking the arguments advanced by the board of zoning appeals, the Indiana Court of Appeals upheld the variance denial.
Taft lawyers Chou-il Lee and Beth Copeland represented the board in the trial court. Donnie Morgan led the appeal.
