PROCESS for Requests for Variance

The Land Use Committee of Meridian~Kessler Neighborhood Association meets on the first Tuesday of every month to review petitions for variance of use and development standards of the Dwelling Districts Zoning Ordinance for Indianapolis.

When seeking a review by the MKNA Land Use Committee, petitioners must provide MKNA with a copy of the Legal Notice of Public Hearing by the 15th of the preceding month (approximately two weeks before the regularly scheduled MKNA Land Use Committee meeting). If the MKNA meeting falls after the scheduled DMD scheduled hearing date, MKNA will file a request for automatic continuance for the public hearing. This means Indianapolis Board of Zoning Appeals will postpone their hearing for four weeks.

Important details are described on the MKNA Land Use Committee page of this website.

Indianapolis Board of Zoning Appeals

These cases may ultimately be scheduled to be heard by the Board of Zoning Appeals in the Public Assembly room of the City County Building (200 East Washington St).

Copies of the proposals listed above and all plans and exhibits pertaining thereto will be on file and available for examination prior to the hearing in Room 1821 of the City-County Building, Indianapolis, Indiana, between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 4:30 P.M., Monday through Friday.
