Zionsville Town Council meeting



The Zionsville Town Council


Feb. 3


Town Hall

What Happened?

-The Council heard a presentation from Zionsville West Middle School students, who are petitioning the town to build a crosswalk or raised bridge at the intersection of Oak and 700 East. Students said that more than 170 ZWMS pupils live in Royal Run and have no way to walk or bike to school. The Council agreed to consider the project during the annual budget meeting in June.

-The Council considered the proposal for a ten-year tax abatement on the property of Hat World, operating as Lids. The property must be deemed an Economic Revitalization Area in order for tax abatement to take affect. A public hearing for this issue is scheduled for the March 3 Council meeting.

-The Council approved a total of $264,000 in fee waivers for the construction of Hat World. The waivers will remove fees for a road impact fee study, sewer connection, and sign permits. According to Councilman Steve Mundy, this is a “very common incentive” for new businesses and was part of the Hat World purchase agreement.

-Councilman Jeff Papa was reelected by the Council to be the 2014 Council President. Elizabeth Hopper was elected as Council Vice President. She replaced councilman Steve Mundy.  (photos)
