The Zionsville Plan Commission met May 21 to vote on plans for a new building on the site of the former town hall building, an expansion to TPI Utility Construction and rezoning for Zionsville Community Schools’ new employee wellness center. Several other projects, including apartments proposed on a site formerly planned for Walmart and a 78-lot Pulte Homes neighborhood development tied to the Central Region Headquarters for Little League International, were continued to the June 18 meeting.
What happened: The commission approved a development plan for a 24,000-square-foot professional office/retail structure at 1120 W. Oak St.
What it means: The new building will be home to Storen Financial Group and Zionsville Eyecare, two businesses currently within a half mile of the site. The project is the first to be proposed on the site of Zionsville’s former town hall, which was demolished in 2017.
What happened: The commission approved an 8,320-square-foot addition to the building at TPI Utility Construction at 478 N. 1100 E.
What it means: TPI, a broadband network power supply installer, is on a 12.63 acre site in north Zionsville. With approval of the addition, TPI also committed to construct a 55-foot pathway along its frontage when a public pathway is extended to the property.
What happened: The commission approved the rezoning of 2.42 acres from urban residential to a special use district to allow for construction of an employee wellness center for Zionsville Community Schools.
What it means: The district’s wellness center is currently housed at Pleasant View Elementary, but with anticipated growth in the student population the district anticipates using that space for students, thus leading to plans for a new site the planned 5,500-square-foot center. The proposed site at 700 Mulberry St. is just east of Zionsville Community High School.
What’s next: ZCS plans to demolish an existing single family home on the site to make room for the wellness center.
