Community Meeting to Discuss Noblesville’s Planning Jurisdiction

May 22, 2015
Noblesville Economic Development

The City of Noblesville will host a community meeting to discuss a proposal to modify the city’s planning jurisdiction at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 28 at Fire Station No. 7, 15251 Olio Rd. Noblesville has experienced significant growth pressure in recent years, particularly southeast of the city. This proposal is an attempt to channel future growth closer to where existing infrastructure is located. In addition, there are parcels that currently exist in northeast Noblesville Township where the planning jurisdiction is split between Noblesville and Hamilton County.

The city is proposing to expand its planning and zoning jurisdiction along the western and southwestern portions of unincorporated Wayne Township. Current jurisdiction lines divide certain parcels, leaving half of the property within the City of Noblesville planning jurisdiction and the other half of the property in Hamilton County jurisdiction. View Planning Annex Map

“By correcting the lines and including whole parcels confusion is eliminated between the city, county and property owners,” Noblesville Assistant Planning Director Andrew Wert said. “The proposed acquisition of additional property into the City of Noblesville’s planning jurisdiction re-establishes a transitional buffer between incorporated land and rural countryside.”

Any potential jurisdiction changes will not affect property taxes, schools districts, maintenance of roads or require involuntary annexation. Existing agricultural structures on property being used as farmland will not be required to follow zoning regulations.

The community meeting will include public officials. Those unable to attend and have questions or comments are asked to contact Andrew Wert at 776-6325 or awert@noblesville.in.us.
