Embittered Knobs developer Thieneman succinctly encapsulates community spirit.

Being rejected by the county sprawl commission is a headline itself, but Don Thieneman takes it to a whole new level:

“It’s disappointing. I guess we’ll have to put in a Super Walmart.”

Atta boy, Don. Let's do what's best for our community.

Plan Commission rejects apartment rezoning near Knobs' Highlander Point, by Grace Schneider (Courier-Journal)

The Floyd County Plan Commission voted Wednesday night to forward an unfavorable recommendation on a proposed rezoning for an apartment complex near Highlander Point center in Floyds Knobs.

Score it a victory for a group of residents who’d spent recent months mounting a campaign against the plans to build 152 apartments northwest of the U.S. 150 and Old Vincennes Road and a defeat for developer Don Thieneman.

Although the matter goes now to the Floyd County commissioners, most are betting they will uphold the advisory recommendation during an election year.
