Plans to build high-end homes and condos just outside of Rockford are back on track now that a federal lawsuit has been settled.

Plainfield Township reached a settlement with developers of the Autumn Trails complex southwest of Childsdale Avenue and Ten Mile Road.

Under the agreement, a total of 98 homes and condominiums will be built on 88 acres. The original plan called for 122 units.

The Township Superintendent calls the scaled down development a good compromise for both sides. Developers filed a federal lawsuit earlier this year after the township refused to rezone the property.

The 88 acres includes rolling wooded hills and connects to the White Pine trail.
