Roseland, Ind. The quiet end of Cripe Street used to lead to nowhere.

“I mean it was a dead end road so it people usually didn't come down here unless they lived down here,” explained Elizabeth McCombs.

But now, dozens of new residents are living right next door at the recently-completed University Edge Apartment Complex.

And since the original plans were approved, some changes have edged their way in, according to Kit Logue who lives nearby.

“The original plan which was presented to us did not have an opening to Cripe Street,” he said.

Residents say the extra entrance is a safety hazard, especially with several small children in the neighborhood.

The Roseland Town Council spoke in favor of several variances during a zoning appeals hearing Wednesday afternoon.

They say the additional access point is necessary for the safety of students living in the apartments.

Another variance residents are upset about -- the relocation of a couple buildings, which they say are now so close they're imposing on their privacy.

But in order for the small town of Roseland to grow, some say change like this is necessary.
