For the past two years, Mundell and Associates worked with the City of Indianapolis on a project called Indy Rezone. The intent of Indy Rezone is to update the City’s zoning ordinances and associated development regulations to be more sustainable and more livable.
The places of our community, how they are built and physically arranged, affect us in a myriad of ways. Zoning is the most common set of tools that a city uses to regulate the location and density of development to create the place we call home and accomplish our community vision for the future. Zoning seeks to protect public health, safety and welfare by regulating the use of land, controlling the type, size, and height of buildings, and other landscape features like parking, open spaces, and connections.
This month, the Indy Rezone team will share a draft of the revised code with the Public. Mundell and Associates assisted with ordinance changes pertaining to wellfield protection, but the Indy Rezone project covers a large number of topics including residential and non-residential development, parking & streets, and administration of development.
On Friday June 17, 2014, the Indy Rezone team will be hosting an open house at The Athanaeum (407 East Michigan Street) from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm and from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Formal presentations will be at 12:30 pm and 6:30 pm. All individuals are invited to stop in at any time to mingle with the project team and learn about what changes are being proposed in the new ordinance.
We hope you’ll take the time to learn more about the Indy Rezone project. It has been over 40 years since the City has made such sweeping and important changes to the zoning ordinances and this is your first opportunity to learn about the changes coming to Indianapolis.
