---- — Efforts to market the town-owned Creekside Corporate Park at Zionsville are officially under way with the unveiling of a conceptual master plan for the site. The town released the master plan for 66 acres of the park on the north side of 106th Street between Bennett Parkway and South Main Street. The town and Zionsville Community Schools came together to purchase the nearly 100 acre site that sits on both sides of 106th Street. The master plan shows 41 developable acres and 25 acres maintained as green space and passive recreation. Wayne DeLong, Zionsville director of planning and economic development, said it was important for the town and redevelopment commission to have the document. "We're able to see what the property could yield and what it could look like after full development," he said. "This is a critical piece for the RDC to have this as their vision statement for the property. It's a plan; it's a fluid document. Without it, it's sort of challenging to market the vision of the property." The press release states the park will be the first in the Indianapolis region to feature low impact development throughout the site, which will result in little discharge of stormwater and will cleanse water by using rain gardens, native plants and drainage swales to manage stormwater without detention ponds.
