Save Your Property Rights
Village of Zionsville, Indiana
Celebrating the past without compromising the future!
Presented as the only viable means to protect historic homes from demolition, the installation of a Zionsville Historic Preservation Commission and subsequent Zionsville Ordinance for Historic Preservation is about more than just preservation. It's about control of Village development. Property owners on both sides of this issue should educate themselves on the true authority of this potential Commission.

Sample Letter to Town Council Members:
Dear Town Council,
I am writing to express my opposition to a Historic Preservation Commission and Ordinance for Historic Preservation. We love living in the Village with its distinct character created from more than 169 years of strong Village investment.
The additional cost to administer this ordinance would be significant to the town. It will be an increased burden on the town to staff and administer, and it would increase the expense to property owners attempting to invest in their homes by requiring even general maintenance and Certificates of Appropriateness.
Please do not support this overreaching and unnecessary ordinance. Our Village is thriving.
