Land Use & Development within Broad Ripple

The BRVA welcomes and supports responsible development in its community. While it seeks to maintain Broad Ripple’s historical significance, dating back to the 1830’s, it sees development as an opportunity to create a stronger and more vibrant community.

The Land Use and Development Committee endeavors to implement the development guidelines established in the Envision Broad Ripple Plan (adopted by the Department of Metropolitan Development in November 2012) and submits recommendations to the BRVA board and Department of Metropolitan Development regarding zoning and planning issues and the local and state boards and commissions regarding the issuance of alcoholic beverage permits. The Committee investigates petitions for variance and zoning changes to determine if they are compatible with the comprehensive plan and goals of the BRVA and neighborhood. Meetings are held informally with intent of cooperation between the parties in an effort to help Broad Ripple develop in the best manner possible.
