Whitestown, Zionsville continue to experience rapid growth


By Mark Ambrogi

It’s not secret the Zionsville and Whitestown areas continue to see a growth spurt.

Welcomemat Services, a mover marketing and technology company, showed a 14 percent increase in the number of people moving into the zip code 46077 from the second quarter of 2015 (283 people) and number of people moving into the area during quarter two in 2016 (323 people).

“We are seeing increase because I’m sure Zionsville is such a great place to live,” said Sheryl Eickman, who owns the Welcomemat Services franchise. “There is low crime rate, great schools and great values. It’s a very impressive community.”

The 46077 zip code covers Zionsville, part of Whitestown and a small section of west Carmel.

“There is growth in Whitestown in the 46077 zip code and 46075 area,” Whitestown Town Manager Dax Norton said. “As far as the Indiana Business Research Center, for the fifth year in a row Whitestown is the fastest growing. Last year we had 14 percent growth in population, which leads the state.”

Norton said there has been tremendous retail growth in the Anson development, the majority of which is in 46077, as well as housing.

“Westport Homes in the 46077 area in Whitestown is starting to kick off sales,” Norton said. “All of the lots in Eagles Nest have now been built. I don’t know what the population’s percentage growth will be for 2016, but I think it will be similar to 2015.”

According to the Indiana Business Research Center, Whitestown’s population grew to 6,013 in 2015.

“We believe in 2016, we’ll have around 6,800, and that’s why we’re doing a special census,” Norton said.

Town of Zionsville Planning Director Wayne DeLong said Zionsville’s population growth is steady.

“We’re seeing on average 400 new residents a year,” DeLong said. “That’s looking at new housing units that are being created.”

DeLong said there is additional growth coming with more housing developments, such as Hampshire and Inglenook under construction.

Zionsville’s population grew from 25,687 in 2014 to 26,296 in 2015, not including the reorganization with Perry Township. The population grew by 9,000 when Union Township and unincorporated areas of Eagle Township became part of Zionsville in 2010.
