On-Line Zoning Research

Three on-line tools are available for research for particular parcel(s). 

Zoning Browser - This application is designed to provide users with zoning and land use standards for particular parcels. The user enters an address, parcel number, or searches for a property from a map.  Once a parcel is selected the application returns information about the property including, but not limited to, the primary and secondary zoning, rezoning, variances (if available online), whether or not the property is in a flood zone, historic preservation district, on the National Register, or in the Regional Center.  The application also gives Barrett Law information for the property if applicable.

MapIndy - This is a map centric application that allows users to view Indianapolis/Marion County data.  Users can perform many functions including an address or intersection search, printing maps, or viewing different layers of information.  Many layers are available including streets, parcels, parks, political boundaries, sanitary and storm sewers, and aerial photography.

For tips in using the Zoning Browser and Data Viewer, see 'Zoning Maps' under our 'Resources' page.
