The Zionsville Town Council will consider several requests and an economic development incentive during its Monday, July 7, meeting.
The council discussed appropriations during its Monday morning, June 30, agenda-setting meeting. The council will consider giving $10,000 to the Zionsville Chamber of Commerce to market Christmas in the Village; more than $32,000 for streetscapes and landscaping improvements in downtown; and $25,000 for a development incentive for hc1.com, a healthcare cloud platform provider at Northwest Technology Park.
HC1.com plans to spend $1.4 million in capital improvements by 2017. The company employs 61 people at an average of $45 per hour, excluding benefits. It plans to add more than 62 jobs with the expansion project.
Zionsville would be approving its portion of the $80,000 the company requested from the Boone Redevelopment Commission. The money for the incentive comes from the food and beverage fund.
"We just amended the food and beverage ordinance to broaden out the uses of that fund to do things just like this," said Town Manager Ed Mitro.
If the council approves the $32,730 request for streetscaping, residents will notice a different look in the downtown planting boxes.
