Millersville at Fall Creek Valley Village and Corridor Plan
This is the plan adopted by the City of Indianapolis, for maintaining and enhancing the stability, livability and sustainability of the Millersville at Fall Creek Valley community.
It's a guide for anyone making a decision about the use of property within the area ~ useful for property owners, developers, neighbors and neighborhood organizations, City staff and City boards and commissions. This plan is used by the City of Indianapolis to evaluate rezoning applications, project future population and employment concentrations, and prioritize capital improvements.
It includes a village plan focused on the retail area (centered on the intersection of Emerson Way and 56th Street) and the historic town of Millersville, and a corridor plan focused on Fall Creek and its more than 25 adjacent neighborhoods.
This plan is a critical foundational tool to help:
Promote Millersville history, schools and culture
Protect its waters, parks and greenways
Preserve its diverse neighborhoods
Utilize community resources to safely connect homes, schools, shops and trails
Create a desirable and unique place to live, learn, work, play, and stay
Volunteers who cared about the future of our village created Millersville at Fall Creek Valley, Inc., in 2009. They recognized that we needed a comprehensive plan to protect the area's assets and guide community development. So they asked for help from the Indianapolis Division of Planning, who agreed to lead a full study and formal planning.
The result was this invaluable roadmap, developed over two years with input from residents, businesses, and representatives of schools, churches and other institutions in the Millersville area, as well as City staffers. It was approved by the Metropolitan Development Commission 2012 and re-adopted in 2015.
