Land Use Committee
The Old Northside Neighborhood Association created a Land Use Committee (LUC) to review all Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission (IHPC) applications for a Certificate of Appropriateness or Authorization within the neighborhood which require an IHPC hearing.
IHPC applicants are
encouraged to meet with the LUC before
submitting an application to IHPC. This allows the LUC to assist
applicants and facilitate the process.
Anyone interested in meeting with the Land Use Committee should contact the LUC Chair, for additional information.
In 1978, The Old Northside was placed on the National Register of Historic Places as an historic district. Soon after, the City of Indianapolis adopted The Old Northside Historic Preservation Plan which serves as the basis for the legal designation of The Old Northside as an "historic area of Indianapolis-Marion County," and gives the Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission authority to exercise "historic area review" over all design, demolition, and exterior appearance changes happening in the area.
What This Means
Committee Meetings and Membership
The Old Northside LUC typically meets the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at All Saints Episcopal Church (1559 Central Avenue). All are invited to attend, and any member of The Old Northside Neighborhood Association is welcome to serve on the committee. See the Events calendar on this site.
