Bryant developer to finish apartment construction after court ruling

BRYANT (Saline Courier) - An apartment development may finally become a reality after getting tied up in the courts for two years.

Saline County Circuit Court Judge Gary Arnold ruled last week that Phase III of Arbor Creek Apartments, owned by Jeremiah Oltmans, is not subject to a 2011 ban placed on apartment construction in Bryant and that Oltmans' request to extend his building permit is not prohibited by the ban.

Oltmans was given his first building permit for Phase III on Jan. 26, 2011. The ban on apartment permits was put into place the next day.

Oltmans said he is arranging for surveying of the property Friday and plans to begin construction next week.
