BREAKING DOWN

Using Each Land Type

With recreational, you are looking at sport stadiums and entertainment facilities, parks and museums. Prime areas to develop commercially.

With commercial buildings, a real estate developer or investor wants to consider the current land use in the urban areas, governmental tax credits and economic activity.

Agricultural land may have regulations that protect the waterways or vegetation it surrounds or sits on. Land leases for crop production can be used as well as rezoning into residential.

Residential is for both single family homes, condos and multifamily apartments which are highly desired in central business districts and suburban areas.

THE RICHES ARE KNOWING WHAT YOU HAVE

KNOWING THE IMPORTANCE OF LAND USE PLANNING MAKES OR BREAKS YOU.

Every community has its own needs, natural resources, limitations and lifestyles. Whether looking at land use in rural areas such as Sheridan or New Palestine to urban density in downtown Indianapolis, it’s important to know how both the local economy, community services are used and distributed and how you build around the regulation that is a necessary evil to meet both current and future needs of a particular neighborhood, city or the state of Indiana.

Lastly, the social impacts you can have in land use are vastly impacting the community you serve as well as your bottom line such as providing affordable housing, historic preservation of structures and creation of green spaces and the elimination of food deserts.
