Apartment Complex to be Built on FDR Drive New one-bedroom apartments will be going up on FDR Drive with the North Vernon City Council approving a change in zoning on Aug. 10 (1992). Realtor Jerry Lamb, representing the unnamed buyer, told the Council 10 of the units would be constructed initially. Up to 10 more could eventually be built at the site. The property is currently zoned industrial as it is the former site of the Jones Junk Yard. Lamb said he was not aware of any opposition to the dwellings and that his church, Jennings Church of Christ, which adjoins the property, is all for it. Wednesday, August 9, 2017
