MDC Revising Indy Rezone
The Indianapolis Metropolitan Development Commission has approved a comprehensive revision of Indy Rezone.
Indy Rezone covers the city's zoning ordinances and subdivision regulations. Senior Planner John Neal says they're revamping and modernizing the city's entire structure of existing ordinances and their content. He says much of it dates back to 1970.
Neal says every parcel of land in Marion County has a zoning classification. He says the changes will allow the city to change how sites are developed, include greater environmental protections and implement new water protections. Neal says the changes still need City County Council approval. Council has 90 days to review, change or approve it.
The three-year process has been made possible in part through a $1.2 million challenge grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
