While a hearing in front of the Board of Zoning Appeals was heard on Tuesday, November 10th, not enough board members were present to make any action binding. The board voted 2-1 in favor of the remonstrators, just shy of the 3 votes required.
The issue has been automatically continued to December 8, 2015 at 1pm.
At last night’s Plan Commission meeting, a study for a possible “north-south connector” to extend Cooper Road/850 E north to 575 S was unanimously approved to be forwarded to the Zionsville Town Council.
To place Zionsville’s transportation infrastructure plans in context, it is informative to at least scan over the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Area Long Range Transportation Plan. There are several Zionsville area projects contained in that document (note especially that Zionsville Road is slated to be upgraded to 4 lanes between 86th Street and 96th Street on page 13-6).
We will attempt to notify our readers when the study is scheduled to be considered by the Zionsville Town Council.
Zionsville is proposing a “North-South Connector” west of the town that would extend Cooper Road/850 E north to 575 S. The Zionsville Plan Commission will be discussing this proposed new roadway at their meeting on October 19th at 7:00pm. I do not know if public comment will be taken at this meeting, but if you have concerns or would like to add your thoughts I would encourage you to attend.
Both the meeting agenda and the study conducted by Beam, Longest and Neff are available to download before the meeting.
The developer has requested and been granted an automatic continuance for the hearing regarding the proposed gas station at 86th Street and Lafayette Road. Each party is allowed one continuance; the developer has now used theirs.
The new hearing date is Tuesday, November 10th at 1pm.
There will be a public hearing in front of the Metropolitan Board of Zoning Appeals on the Improvement Location Permit that was issued for the proposed gas station at 86th Street & Lafayette Road. The board has the authority to revoke the issued permit and stop the proposed gas station. Here are the details:
When: Tuesday, October 13, 2015 at 1:00pm.
What: Board of Zoning Appeals Division II
Where: Public Assembly Room, 2nd Floor of the City-County Building, 200 E. Washington St.
Come and show your support for the appeal! We realize it is during the day and many have to work, but if you have some flexibility in your schedule, please make every effort to attend.
