There was a small turnout at the January public meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association (BRVA) Land Use and Zoning Committee meeting held on the 22nd, 2019, at Northminster Presbyterian Church. There were two items on the agenda (bold below).
A. 6537 Carrollton Avenue, David Kingen regarding the rezoning of 0.17 acres from the D-4 district to the C-1 classification and a variance of development standards and subdivision ordinance to provide for 4 parking spaces, with deficient maneuvering, 1 deficiently sized handicapped space (6 parking spaces, including handicapped spaces with adequate maneuvering required), and to provide for a freestanding sign with a six-foot front setback (15 foot front setback required). Petition #2018-CZN-863 / 2018-CVR-863 Hearing before the Metropolitan Development Commission continued from December 27, 2019 to January 24, 2019 at 1:00 p.m.
This petition is to open an Edward Jones office at 6537 Carrollton Avenue. This house recently housed Ashland Gallery and Stu's Studio. The proposed new business use of the existing house would not affect the residential exterior, except for a small sign. The business would be open from 8 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday, by appointment only. There would be three employees. The BRVA committee voted to support this petition.
B. 5912 Broadway Street, Nate Ward regarding dividing the property. For information only. Has not filed with DMD.
This proposal is to subdivide the property at 5912 Broadway Street, north-south and east-west, into four lots that will each contain one house. The existing residence, on the northeast corner of the property, would remain. The two new lots on the west end of the property would be assigned Park Avenue addresses. There was no vote since this was presented by the petitioner for information only.
The next public meeting of the BRVA Land Use and Development committee is scheduled for Tuesday, February 26, 2019, starting at 6 pm in the basement of Northminster Presbyterian Church, 1660 Kessler Boulevard.
