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.
The Town engaged DELV Design (DELV) and Thomas P. Miller & Associates (TPMA) to better understand what development residents would like to see, and how these preferences could take shape.
TPMA and DELV identified three main objectives to guide the Town through the redevelopment based on design thinking methodologies. The three main objectives are included in the Design Process.
Understand - solving the right problem
Explore - solving the problem right
Implement - next step: full design ahead
The Design Process
We called on the community to help strategically and thoughtfully re-invent the gateway into the Village Business District. To create a “whole-community serving” experience, we involved the community in the process through a survey, two in-person listening sessions, one online listening session and many stakeholder interviews.
