HEARING SCHEDULE CHANGE /// This case is scheduled be heard by the Metropolitan Board of Zoning Appeals on April 7, 2015 at 1:00pm in the Public Assembly Room (second floor) of the City-County Building (200 E. Washington St, Indianapolis).
All interested neighbors are encouraged to attend.
In a letter of appeal to the Metropolitan Development Commission Board of Zoning Appeals, Michael A. McKillip, Executive Director of Midtown Indianapolis, Inc. wrote,
“On behalf of the Board of Directors of Midtown Indianapolis, Inc. I write to urge that you reconsider the issuance of an Improvement Location Permit for the construction of a Convenience/Gas Station at 3207 N. Central Avenue.
Sites such as 3207 Central Avenue deserve the highest level of scrutiny. Neighborhoods challenged by decades of decline, outdated property uses, and suffering from high rates of vacancy and contamination cannot return to stability without strict attention and adherence to the planning efforts of the community and diligent review of land use, zoning, and development best practices. We urge reconsideration of the submitted plans and ask that work on the site be stopped immediately while the plans are under review.”
NOTE: If you are interested in attending any of these hearings, please remember to check the relevant agendas before heading downtown that day in case the hearing has been continued to a future date.
