My neighborhood, Meridian Kessler, has been doing some behind-the-scenes maneuvering to promote the implementation of Form-Based zoning codes in the neighborhood. Form-based codes are the logical antidote to the current use-based zoning that is in place in much of the United States. Urban Indy will be highly supportive of the Meridian Kessler Neighborhood Association’s push for this important and much-needed change. The first public meeting will be held at Developer Town at 53rd Street and Winthrop Avenue on Thursday, December 1st, at 7:30 pm. More information can be found on this link on the MKNA’s webpage.
I encourage all fans of this blog to attend this meeting in support of this process. This is a great opportunity to push for better development within the neighborhood, and not only that, it could serve as a catalyst to encourage other neighborhoods to follow suit.
