McCordsville Green Lights Town Center Plan
The town of McCordsville could see a new town center develop over the coming years. According to the Daily Reporter, a town council vote this week approved a plan calling for commercial, residential, mixed-use and community space development on more than 100 acres of land just south of State Road 67 in Hancock County.
The project would develop over the next few decades and has a projected cost of about $42 million in public funds and private investment at $173 million, according to the publication.
The town center plan outlines more than 900,000 square feet of building space as wells as more than 840 residential units and 2,000 parking spaces.
Ryan Crum, director of planning and building for McCordsville, told the publication the long term plan lays out a forward-focused vision for the town.
“To some extent this is a guidebook for us, as we look at implementation, as we look at zoning for that area, so it gives us a vision and a blueprint to where we want to head,” Crum said. “It’s us taking control of our destiny to some extent.”
