INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – At Monday night’s city county council meeting several new developments were approved.
Council first approved the Broad Ripple redevelopment project. The full council voted to use $5.7 million to pay for public improvements, including a plaza and canal walk, just north of College and Broad Ripple Avenue.
The project also includes 120 apartments, a parking garage and Whole Foods.
Council also approved a $16 million loan for Indianapolis road repairs. The loan would be a short term loan, to help fix what’s being called “the worst of the worst” roads.
The money is on top of the $8 million the council approved earlier in the spring.
The final approval was a proposal for a landlord registry in Indianapolis. It would require owners or landlords of rental units to pay a $5 fee to register their contact information with the city.
The proposal would go into effect on July 1 if approved by committee and Mayor Ballard.
