The Zionsville Plan Commission will consider a request to rezone nearly 600 acres on the west side of Michigan Road north of Willow Road for a planned unit development anchored by a new golf course.

Westfield-based Henke Development is requesting the rezone to develop Holliday Farms, which is proposed to include various home sizes and styles, apartments, retail, restaurants, nature parks and a clubhouse, much of it east of an 18-hole golf course designed by Pete and Alice Dye of Carmel. It is proposed to include pathways that connect to Turkey Foot Trail for access to the downtown Village area.

“The incorporation of woods at the future main entrance from Michigan Road at the boulevard entrance will be a natural gateway to a high-end golf course community, office, retail, living and everyday amenities carefully laid out to preserve historic sites and complement existing surrounding units,” states document filed by Henke Development with the Town of Zionsville. “It seems like a world away, but it has been here, in Zionsville, all along.”

The PUD is broken into five sections or “blocks,” according to documents filed with the town:

  • The Residential and Lifestyle Block includes the golf course, clubhouse and a wide variety of custom home sizes and lot sizes, from large secluded single-family estate lots to garden homes.
  • The South Mixed-Use Block at Michigan and Willow roads will be designated for neighborhood commercial and retail uses in one- and two-story buildings and allow for vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
  • The Residential Mixed-Use Block will be north of the South Block and include space ideal for senior living, attached dwellings or multi-family dwellings, childcare facilities or related uses.
  • The Central Mixed-Use Block along Michigan Road will have mixed-use freestanding outlot buildings for various commercial purposes as well as multi-family residential dwellings, childcare or other similar uses.
  • The Historic Office and Hospitality Block will be on the northern corner along Michigan Road and feature a preserved 1865 historic home and barn incorporated into a layout that may also include professional and medical offices.

The plan commission will discuss the rezoning request at a 7 p.m. meeting April 16 at Zionsville Town Hall, 1100 W. Oak St.
