July Land Use committee meeting - one item
posted: Aug. 09, 2019
The July public meeting of the Broad Ripple Village Association's Land Use and Development committee was held on July 23. There were 20 in attendance. There was only one item on the agenda [in bold below].
A. 1426 Broad Ripple Ave (within Broad Ripple Park), Mickey Rodgers regarding rezoning of 2.2 acres from the SU-37 district to the PK-1 district to provide for park uses. Petition #2019-ZON-064
The parcel of land that contains the Broad Ripple Park Family Center is currently zoned SU37. This is zoning for a library use. The rest of the park is zoned PK1. The request is to rezone the SU37 parcel to PK1. The petitioner stated that this should have been done when the library moved out of the park years ago.
Apparently no further zoning is needed for the proposed construction of a new family center and medical facility in the park. It was stated that if a subordinate use is built in a city park and that use is in the approved master plan for that park, then no permit changes are required.
The committee voted unanimously to support this petition.
The Metazoa proposal for 804 Laverock Road is still on hold until further information is obtained.
After the meeting there was a discussion of how the BRVA's Land Use and Development committee operates. These questions were from GACC (Greater Allisonville Community Council) and BRAG (Binford Redevelopment and Growth) to help them in organizing their groups.
The next scheduled meeting of the committee is August 27 at 6 pm at Northminster Presbyterian Church, 1660 Kessler Boulevard [KK28 on map].
