Pending appeal | What's next?

We advocated for protection of property use commitments so that we will have input on the type of tenant. This is especially important since the Walgreens site is at a highly visible intersection that serves as a gateway into the Millersville business community. It's in a key spot that will have significant impact on the perceived character of Millersville to all of Indianapolis and visitors to our community.

 

We hope to work with the owner to find a tenant that will be a great fit for Millersville. We have spoken with Cathedral High School, Community Hospital and a few others. If you have contacts, connections or leads on other potentially great tenants, let us know. Send us a note!

 

We want a property use that...

  • Complements our Millersville at Fall Creek Valley Village and Corridor Plan

  • Is noncommercial or "quiet" commercial, since the site is in an area designated a "buffer zone" directly bordering residential properties

  • Helps enhance our image as an attractive, quality neighborhood

  • Adds value to our community

 

Why did we oppose Dollar Tree?

The petition supporting Dollar Tree would have removed constraints on hours of operation and C-3 uses on the site. We are targeting a good-neighbor tenant with quiet operations as well as a quiet, attractive and well-maintained exterior, in sync with a residential "buffer zone." And, we already have a Dollar General just two blocks away.
