JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) - The site of a southern Indiana Halloween attraction might be redeveloped into affordable housing for seniors.

The Jeffersonville City Council on Monday approved a rezoning request from New Hope Services for a one-acre downtown site that currently includes the attraction called the Industrial Terrorplex.

New Hope President and CEO Jim Bosley told the council the rezoning will allow it to seek low-income tax credits from the state to convert about 40,000 square-feet into 51 affordable senior housing units. Bosley said New Hope should learn in February whether it will receive the tax credits from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority.

The (Louisville, Kentucky) Courier-Journal reports (http://cjky.it/1nhdVAq ) the development would include a mix of one- and two-bedroom units for people ages 55 and older.
