Avon, Indiana, also known as the putrid arm-pit of Hendricks County, is close to adopting a zoning overlay to govern new construction along US 36. For those of you who haven’t tried to drive down 36 recently, it’s a mess. Traffic is horrible, the maze of poorly planned mega parking lots surrounded by dozens of big box stores is unnavigable and the majority of the buildings are cheaply built and ugly. It looks like a novice playing SimCity. It’s mind-numbing and soul-sucking development in the name of the false god Materialism.
Also, the headline says “Avon planners.” This phrase strikes me as silly. Kinda like “Nazi humanitarians.”
