Land Use Plan

The Marion County Land Use Plan is one element of the Comprehensive Plan for Indianapolis and Marion County.  The update of the Land Use Plan is part of the broader Plan 2020 Initiative and is guided by the Plan 2020 Bicentennial Agenda.  The plan is required by state statute as a basis for zoning and must include objectives and policies for future land use development.  It is a policy document, not law, designed to promote the orderly development and redevelopment of the county.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this update to the Marion County Land Use Plan through one of our 25 in-person input opportunities, through our online options, and at the Exhibition on City Planning.  We especially appreciate those who participated in the People’s Planning Academy education component as well as those who served on the Stakeholder Committees for each township, who ultimately each unanimously voted to approve each portion of the plan.

In November and December 2018, the Metropolitan Development Commission unanimously approved each township land use plan map (these, along with archived draft maps from the process) are available here.

With adoption, the Plan 2020 update to the Marion County Land Use Plan is complete and no further updates are planned for this website.  This site’s content will be retained for archival purposes.
