COMPREHENSIVE PLAN for INDIANAPOLIS and MARION COUNTY

LAND USE ELEMENT

 ​Land Use Plans are primarily used to inform zoning and establish policies for the development and redevelopment of all property in Marion County.  As part of its Plan 2020 updates, DMD is shifting land use planning into a countywide planning system.  Certain geographic-based neighborhood and corridor plans prepared after 2008 will, however, be retained during this update, and are considered Specific Area plans.  These plans are listed in the Specific Area element section and not included in this land use section.​

​​​PRIMARY SYSTEM PLAN

Marion County Land Use Plan Pattern Book (2017)

Note the Pattern Book only establishes the Land Use Plan classification system and does not apply to any geography until the Marion County Land Use Plan map has been created and adopted through the Plan 2020 process.
