Bargersville, IN

Unified Development Ordinance

As the fastest growing community in Johnson County, the Town of Bargersville needed an update to their development and design standards to guide growth. The Bargersville Unified Development Ordinance combined the Town’s Zoning Ordinance, Subdivision Control Ordinance, Construction Standards, and Storm Water Drainage Manual into one, easy-to-use document. The document was organized in an intuitive manner from general provisions to more detailed standards. The document addressed the unique challenges facing Bargersville including a new downtown district that encourages mix of use and building massing as desired in downtown Bargersville. Overlay districts addressed flood hazard areas and highway corridor aesthetic concerns, and two industrial districts were added to help Bargersville better prepare for future industrial uses in the Town.
