The Avon Town Council met April 8 and approved land annexation and rezoning for a new fire station. The land that sits in Washington Township south of County Road 200 North. Located at 1481 N. County Road 900 E, it was also rezoned from agricultural to institutional.
The Hendricks County Commissioners have consented to this annexation, and the plan commission gave it a favorable recommendation. It is contiguous to Avon and a fire station will be constructed on this property. A traffic signal that will automatically activate when this new fire station has a run will be installed along County Road 900 E.
