VILLAGE CENTER PLANNING

​Village Centers are walkable, mixed-use places that offer services and amenities to nearby neighborhoods.  Such places exist in a variety of contexts, from the rural towns like Wanamaker in Franklin Township to mixed-use suburban environments like Nora to more traditional urban places like Broad Ripple and Irvington. Indianapolis has a variety of zoning districts that enable these diverse places to exist, including two (Mixed-Use 3 and Mixed-Use 4) that require the Department of Metropolitan Development to initiate zoning through a special type of plan. 

This page will provide general information about these special processes as well as more detailed information about specific projects currently underway.
