The June public meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association's Land Use and Development committee meeting was held on June 25, 2019, at Northminster Presbyterian Church at 6pm. There were approximately 15 in attendance. There were two items on the agenda (in BOLD below). [As a note: The Broad Ripple Gazette archives the committee's agendas on its website at www.broadripplegazette.com/brva_archive.htm]
A. 5908 Broadway St., Petition No. 2019-DV1-025; Nate Ward seeks a development standards variance to provide for a single-family dwelling seven feet from the dwelling to the south (10 ft required). (6:05-6:25)
This item was for properties at 5908 and 5912 N. Broadway Street. This proposal was also before the committee at the January meeting. The property currently has one residence and one detached garage. The project splits the property into the two plots 5908 and 5912. The garage, now on lot 5908 would be removed and a house built in its place. A shared drive for the two houses would go between the structures. Eventually, two more houses would be built at the rear of the lots with frontages on what now appears to be an alley, but is actually Park Avenue. At the time when the 3rd and 4th houses are built, Park Avenue would be improved and utilities would be brought up from Kessler Boulevard. The committee had many issues with the details of this proposal. It decided to hold off on taking a vote until the staff at the Department of Metropolitan Development sees the new plans and makes a recommendation to the city.
B. 6202 Carrollton Ave., Petition No. 2019MOD006, New Paradigm Church/David Kingen regarding petition to modify commitments to permit church structure to be converted into office use. (6:25-6:45)
This item is to convert the existing New Paradigm Church building at 62nd and Carrollton Avenue into offices. Olio Health, a healthcare digital collaboration platform supplier, would move its headquarters to the building. The building and parking are adequate for the use. The variances needed are to change previous zoning commitments placed on the property to allow for ADA ramps and business office hours. There would be between 18 to 30 employees at this office. The interior of the building would be renovated, but the exterior would remain mostly as it is now, with some needed improvements to doors and windows. The committee voted to support this proposal.
New Paradigm Church on agenda
UPDATE: 804 Laverock Road (property to build a Metazoa Brewing building) is delayed again because of delays in surveying information.
The next public meeting of the committee is scheduled for July 23, 2019.
