The Subarea Planning staff provides planning and technical assistance for portions of Marion County that are smaller than townships. Examples are neighborhood plans, corridor plans, redevelopment area plans, and economic development area plans. The purpose of these planning efforts is to improve the quality of life for the city's residents. Much of this planning effort has been focused in Center Township.
Technical assistance, provided by staff, includes such tasks as the collection and analysis of specialized information that is used in planning and other similar efforts.
Past projects include the preparation of neighborhood plans, urban design studies, the Regional Center Plan, and other types of small-area plans.
