The City of Huntingburg and the Huntingburg City Council is moving forward towards entering into a contract with Indianapolis based Taylor Siefker Williams Design Group to review and build a comprehensive plan for the city.
Typically done every 7 years or so, a comprehensive plan sets forth a direction for the city to take on future projects and developments.
Items such as the Overpass Project and the Stellar Communities developments are examples of what could be proposed, with the goal to continue to grow, develop, and improve the city of Huntingburg.
The last time a comprehensive plan was put together was 2014. Another aspect of the comprehensive plan is a complete review of the city’s codes.
The last time Huntingburg’s codes were reviewed was in 1999. This will give the city the chance to make sure Huntingburg’s codes are up to date.
Also Tuesday night the Huntingburg City Council made some changes to a previous ordinance that will include Stellar Way as part of the city.
The original ordinance eliminated parking on both sides of the street. But after listening to concerns and at the urging of residents in the area, the council made the amendment to allow parking on the south side of the street.
Hunters Crossing’s homeowner’s association restricts parking on the street, allowing vehicles to be parked for a maximum of six hours a day; legally, a homeowner association’s contract for a subdivision can be more restrictive than a municipality’s rule.
