VRA requests PUD committee

The Village Residents Association is hoping to be more involved in planning matters, specifically planned unit development approvals.

Scott Lusk, president of the VRA, presented to the town council Monday morning, Jan. 27, a proposal to create a PUD committee. According to the proposal, the committee would be made of a council representative, a plan commission representative, the director of planning, the president of the home owners' association within a maximum of 1 mile of the PUD, an at-large member and an architect or planner.

"This committee is not something that takes power away from the council or other town leaders," Lusk said. "It's more of a prospective approach since I feel we are on the cusp of development."

Speaking on behalf the VRA and the Home Owners Association Roundtable, Lusk said they believe a PUD is an "extraordinary tool" that gives the town "extraordinary power" and should be used sparingly. There are two PUDs in Zionsville now -- the Pittman property and Dow property.

"Our voice is not formalized, and that is what we're striving for," he said.
