What happened: NewPro Containers requested a detailed development that was forwarded to the city council, 6-0.

What it means: A 48,000-square-foot industrial building would sit on approximately 3.4 acres of the West Oak Planned Unit Development District. The facility would be west of the adjacent Westfield Business Park at 16460 Southpark Dr.


What happened: The Hall and House Planned Unit Development was reintroduced to the APC, and petitioners asked for a modification to the sign standards to allow more exposure around the property. A unanimous favorable recommendation was sent to the city council.

What it means: The six-acre site includes a real estate area on the southeast corner of Wheeler Road and Ind. 32. This would include the Monon Marketplace and Ricker’s. The property is zoned under the PUD and is primarily used for commercial purposes.


What happened: A request for an overall development plan and primary plat for The Trails was unanimously approved.

What it means: At the prior Technical Advisory Committee meeting the petition was reviewed. A public hearing was held at the plan commission’s June 5, meeting. The project will sit at the southeast corner of Oak Ridge Road and Ind. 32. Concerns about traffic flow were raised by a community member but was waved off. The commission said in part that “the opportunity for those comments from the community is over.”


What happened: The APC approved three other items of business, including overall development plans for the Penske Subdivision and Village Park Plaza PUD

What it means: The Penske Subdivision would sit at the northwest corner of Ind. 32 and Dartown Road. The requests for Penske included an overall development plan and primary plat for two commercial lots on approximately 9.51 acres in the Enclosed Industrial District. Washington Prime Group by Hamilton Designs asked that the Village Park Plaza PUD change two zoning requests of 12 acres each. They also requested a primary plat and overall development plan and approval of a commercial subdivision at 2222 E. 146th St.
