Village zoning issues heard at January meeting
posted: Feb. 05, 2016
There were three items on the agenda at the January 2016 public meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association's Land Use and Development Committee held at the Indianapolis Art Center.
A. 6152 College Avenue, Thomas Searles regarding a variance of use to provide for an office at this location. Petition # 2015-UV3-033 Hearing continued to Feb. 16
This variance is for allowing an office in the existing residence just south of the church at 62nd and College Avenue. The house was built in 1894. The proposal is to operate an engineering office from this location. There would be about five full-time employees. No customers visit and no signage would be installed on the house. The committee voted to support this variance.
B. 6556 Ferguson Street, Becky Ruby-Wojtowicz for information before purchasing the property for Lilly Lane Flowers presently located at 6525 Ferguson.
This was for information only. The petitioner asked the committee for recommendations to expand the house by adding a garage. The committee responded that since this is in a flood plain, it might be better to add on to the existing structure, as there is a one-time 50% improvement waiver in existence. Adding a garage would require it to meet the current flood plain building restrictions.

C. 61st and Monon Trail, Michael Fox with Buckingham Construction Corporation on information for the installation of art at this location.
This item was for information only. Buckingham has designed an art installation area for the northwest corner of the Monon Place Apartments property. This corner is the southwest corner of 61st and the Monon Trail. Buckingham will seek approval from Indy Parks and the City of Indianapolis for the encroachment into the right of way of 61st Street and the Monon Trail. Construction could begin in the spring.
The next public meeting is scheduled for February 23, 2016 at 6pm at the Indianapolis Art Center.
