Boards

The Town of Whiteland currently has several boards and commissions comprised of appointed officials. These boards conduct business related to specific aspects of our community, the community’s development, and the quality of life.

Plan Commission

The Plan Commission serves to guide development and construction by advising the Town Council in land use ordinances (for example, rezonings), creation of comprehensive plans, review of proposed development plans, approval of subdivisions/plats, and other similar functions. 

Board of Zoning Appeals

The Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) is described as a quasi-judicial board that can adjust zoning requirements if specific zoning regulations are found to be inapplicable or burdensome for a particular property. 

Storm Water Management Board

The Storm Water Management Board oversees the Whiteland storm water utility, and directs infrastructure construction and other projects related to storm water, drainage, and water quality.

Redevelopment Commission

The Redevelopment Commission (RDC) has authority over the Town’s tax increment financing (TIF) districts and manages the funds generated through new development in the TIF districts.

Inactive boards

Parks Board

This board was established by ordinance in 1988 and charged with the oversight of the Town’s parks and recreation development. It is our understanding that this board was unable to quickly achieve its initial goals, so its continued organization was deemed unnecessary at the time. In the future, the Parks Board may be reestablished.

Economic Development Commission

This commission was formed in 2003, superseding the “Development Commission” set up in 1970. The statutory purpose of the EDC is to “to investigate, study, and survey the need for additional job opportunities, industrial diversification, water services, and pollution control facilities.” Its primary tool is tax abatement negotiation with the Town Council. This commission may be reactivated when the need for its service rises.
