Townhome development approved

After a one-week delay, the city council on Monday unanimously approved a final plat for a 25-lot townhomes development in southwest Rochester.

The council vote was delayed from the Oct. 17 meeting, when some council members asked for time to let neighboring property owners review an easement agreement affecting them.

The discussion concerned Orchard Hills Villas, proposed by Rochester developer Michael Younge.

The neighbors, Kevin and Jennifer Condon, represented by Jennifer's father, Tom DeBoer, were satisfied with the easement Younge offered them.

Younge "made an extreme effort to work with the family," DeBoer said. That paved the way for the city council to approve the final plat.


"It sounds like everything is resolved," said council member Randy Staver.
