Little League, Pulte officially withdraw zoning appeals


Discussions between Little League International, Pulte Homes and the town of Zionsville concerning the development of a 57-acre property at 8602 E. County Road 500S have officially halted.

At a July 10 Zionsville Board of Zoning Appeals meeting, Zionsville-based attorney Matt Price, who represents Pulte Homes and Little League International, withdrew a filing with the board for several zoning variances that would have been a vital step for the development.

Initially, the group planned to build Little League International’s Central Region headquarters, along with a 78-home subdivision, on the property.

During Zionsville’s June 19 Plan Commission meeting,  Price spoke on behalf of Little League International and Pulte Homes, notifying the town that Little League would not be moving forward with plans for the headquarters. At that time, Price could not say if Pulte also was pulling out of the agreement but said Pulte would re-notify homeowners if it decided to move forward with the development.

Little League International CEO Stephen Keener said In a previous statement, “Little League International believes it’s in everyone’s best interest to begin exploring other options, both with the Zionsville Local Organizing Committee and potentially elsewhere within our central region.”
