FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Peter Franklin Jewelers is granted an extension to develop property on Jefferson Boulevard.

A plan was approved for land near Taylor Road a couple years ago. That property was rezoned from residential to commercial in 2017 and it upset many neighbors.

The issue now is some of those neighbors sued after finding a deed that prevents commercial property. We're told that's almost resolved but the plan commission granted a one year extension so lawyers can work out the details.
