Zionsville Gateway Area

Project Background

With the demolition of the PNC bank building and locksmith shop at the northwest corner of Main and Sycamore Streets on July 28, the Town of Zionsville began the first stage of the plan for the Zionsville Gateway Area (ZGA). 

Now, Mayor Emily Styron is engaging the community: help us reinvent the gateway into our historic Village Business District.

Mission of the ZGA Plan

Mission statement: We are here to identify the highest, best and most sustainable mix of uses within the Zionsville Gateway Area (ZGA) and to explore ideas for an economically vibrant, whole-community serving and authentically Zionsville experience.

In October, strategic planning and consulting firm Thomas P. Miller and Associates (TPMA) will facilitate our process and begin engaging the community.Concurrent with the efforts of TPMA, DELV Design Studio will produce master planning and design options and package these into designs for ultimate use in future Request for Proposals (RFPs).

Through the design process, we will be guided to 1. Understand (solving the right problem), 2. Explore (solving the problem right) and 3. Implement (next step: full design ahead).
