The Zionsville Town Council met Dec. 5 to discuss a change to the traffic code, Zoning Ordinance amendments and more.

What happened: The council introduced an ordinance to amend the traffic code to allow for two-way traffic on Plum and Eighth streets.

What it means: Lance Lantz, Zionsville supt. of street and stormwater services, said that approximately 20 years ago a resident at the intersection requested to restrict traffic to one direction to prevent vehicles from cutting through the area. The resident no longer lives there, and neighbors have requested the streets be open for two-way traffic “for the sake of convenience,” Lantz said.

What’s next: The council is expected to vote on the change after the second reading of the ordinance.

 

What happened: The council considered several minor amendments to the town’s Zoning Ordinance.

What it means: Amendments include the establishment or increase of certain building permit fees and changes to the parking requirements at businesses adjacent to the Village, among other adjustments.

What’s next: The council is expected to vote on the ordinance after its second reading.

 

What happened: The council introduced an ordinance establishing a Local Road & Bridge Matching Fund.

What it means: The fund is designed to hold funds from INDOT’s Community Crossing Matching Grant, which awarded $1 million to Zionsville earlier this year. It will also receive match funds transferred from the LOIT Special Distribution Fund.

What’s next: The council is expected to vote on the ordinance after its second reading.
