Board of Zoning Appeals recap



What Happened? Walmart originally was petitioning for a variance in the proposed Michigan Road store but requested a continuance which was approved by the Board

What it Means? Walmart’s proposed store on Michigan Road just north of 106th Street is larger than the 125,000 square foot building the town allows by 31,621 square feet, and the company’s  representatives were scheduled to request an approval for a larger store at this meeting. However. in December, Walmart was asked by the Indiana Dept. of Transportation to change the Michigan Road entry and would like more time to prepare a new site plan since coroporate approvals and re-engineering of the site is needed.

What’s Next? The continuance was granted unanimously by the zoning board and will be revisited at the Feb. 12 meeting. Walmart will also appear before the Plan Commission on Jan. 22 and request a continuance to the Feb. 19 meeting.


What Happened? Sullivan Foundation’s request to refile its petition to adjust lot lines within its overall property within one year of a previous decision by the Board of Zoning Appeals was approved

What it Means? The Sullivan Foundation is permitted to refile its petition to adjust its internal lot lines at any time, rather than waiting the required 12 months.

What’s Next? The petitioner indicated that it would review its calendar and refile, but did not commit to an exact date


Next Board of Zoning Appeals meeting: Feb. 12 at 6:30 p.m. in the Beverly Harves Meeting Room
