Community Planning

The Town of Indian Trail Planning Department seeks to develop a vibrant and self-sufficient town by promoting a community planning philosophy. This approach entails a focus on citizen outreach and involvement for both the residential and business community within the Town limits. The following information details some of the operations the Planning Department in regards the community planning philosophy.

 Citizen Participation

We are committed to encouraging citizen participation, education, customer service and partnerships with all community stakeholders. Residents of the Town have many opportunities to become involved whether it be through joining a one of the boards or committees or by even volunteering for a day to help out with one of the many town events. If you are interested in finding out more information on participation and volunteer opportunities please contact the Planning Department.

 Community Outreach

The Planning Department regularly speaks at various community meetings to discuss the services and operations of the Town as well as answer planning and zoning questions. These meetings include Home Owners Association meetings, and other business and civic group gathering.

The Town Staff strives to encourage residents to become involved in the many volunteer options available not only through the Town but in local charities and community groups as well. Citizen involvement in every aspect is crucial to the success of our community.  Employees of the Town in addition to their work responsibilities participate in charities and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. 


Town Annexation

The Town of Indian Trail offers many benefits to its citizens. Home owners living in unincorporated areas, places not currently in a city or town, may become part of Indian Trail through the annexation process. This process typically begins when homeowners sign a petition requesting annexation into the Town.

 Subdivision Statistics

The Planning Department maintains a spreadsheet of information for all residential subdivisions within the Town. This data is kept current through monthly updates from the Planning Staff. Some of the information identified in the spreadsheet includes zoning designations for each subdivision, lots under construction and percent complete.

The subdivision map is linked to the subdivision statistics spreadsheet above. This map is updated monthly so that it reflects the data collected from the subdivision statistics spreadsheet. The map is a great tool to monitor development trends and growth hotspots.
