Zionsville Plan Commission recap


Compiled by Anna Skinner

What happened: Hampshire, a 322-lot subdivision in dispute since 2006, had plans approved.

What it means: Hampshire’s additions to their development plan prohibit builders to build on the north side of the road if they’ve already built on the south. This encourages diversity amongst builders. The changes were approved by all members of the plan commission and despite multiple complaints from Zionsville residents, Hampshire can continue with their development.

What happened: Lee Kleiner presented the changes to the plan of changing the façade of the Dairy Queen on 340 S. 1st St.

What it means: The plan commission approved the changes so that the Dairy Queen can update their façade and also continue to obtain the look that The Village wants to portray. Dairy Queen can now continue with construction.


What happened: There was a petition from Hidden Hollow for minor plat approval in order to establish a 4.43 acre lot, a 3 acre lot and a 3.05 acre lot on a plot of 10.75 acres. The builder wanted to build some homes for a few family friends.

What it means: Other than few finalizations to be made for Hidden Hollow, construction was approved with conditions that if sewage becomes available, they will commit to tapping into the sewers of the septic tank.
What happened: After the Hampshire discussion, the plan commission decided to implement an automatic time period for both Development Plan Approvals and Subdivision Plats where the approvals would expire if certain criteria were not met.

What it means: The finalizations of that rule were granted a continuance to the July plan commission meeting to allow for the correct changes to be made to the writings.
