Temporary ordinances originally approved by the Fishers City Council in May, concerning efforts to update outdated zoning and standards along the I-69 corridor between 106th and 116th streets, were extended another 90 days at the Aug. 15 city council meeting.
While city staff continues to work on new, streamlined zoning for the corridor, which city officials view as a key employment node for Fishers’ future, the ordinances require and proposed development in the area to first go before the city council for approval.
“Those were put in for 120 days and will expire Sept. 8,” Fishers Director of Zoning and Planning Tony Bagato said. “Staff is still working with city officials and the city to determine the best standards going forward for these two areas and we’re asking for a 90-day extension from the Sept. 8 deadline, which would push us to December.”
Extensions for both ordinances, one for the area near 106th Street and one for near 116th Street, were approved unanimously by city councilors.
