Rural to Urban Transition
In September and October of 2023, the Town Council met to consider transitioning certain areas from the Rural Service District to the Urban Service District of the Town of Zionsville. The areas to be reclassified from the Rural to Urban Service District include all properties within the Devonshire, Holliday Farms and Chelsea Park neighborhoods, in addition to a few lots contiguous to Chelsea Park. The transition is effective January 1, 2024.
The following services are available to those in the Urban Service District.
*Please note that all existing and future residential streets within the Holliday Farms subdivision are and will be privately owned and maintained. This service transition will not change that status.
- This service provides for the collection and disposal of small branches and sticks less than 6” in diameter. Residents are to stack their brush and limbs along the street in front of their homes just behind the curb or just off the street.
- The collection is biannual, typically the last two full weeks of April and the first two full weeks of October.
- There is a specific schedule for each area of town, and the schedule is posted here in the spring and fall.
- This service provides an opportunity for residential properties to dispose of heavy, non-toxic materials (furniture, appliances, etc.) not normally collected in the weekly trash service.
- Information is posted here.
- This service typically begins in mid-October each year and runs through the first week of December.
- Residents are to rake or blow leaves to the roadside in long, narrow rows to be collected.
- Our goal is to provide this service weekly to all residents, however during peak times when there is a large volume, the service may only be bi-weekly.
- Information is posted here.
- The Town of Zionsville will assume ownership and maintenance of all public roadways and infrastructure within public rights of way. This typically includes streets, sidewalks and curbs. Private roads, such as the residential streets in the Holliday Farms subdivision and Langton Walk in Chelsea Park, will remain under their current ownerships.
- Decorative signage, posts and equipment will remain under their current ownerships, typically the subdivision HOA. The Town will assume responsibility for standard road signage and posts as well as assume authority to establish new or amend traffic regulations.
- DPW will salt and plow public streets based on established protocols.
- Any bridges within the transition area will remain under their current ownerships.
- Any property currently subject to a drain assessment by the county will continue to be assessed and receive services from the Boone County Surveyor.
- Any existing storm sewer and drainage systems will remain under their current ownerships and jurisdictions.
Residents will have their trash and recycling collection provided by our contracted trash company – Priority Waste through the Town’s master contract. In 2024, the monthly fee for both services will be $12.71 and is billed by the Town. The Town will facilitate this service transition. For information about Priority, click here.
The Zionsville Police Department will be the primary public safety service in your area. The Zionsville Fire Department will continue to provide fire services.
