Planning and Zoning

If you have interest in development, please contact the Town Manager at (317) 535-5531 or email at 

The Field Inspector oversees enforcement of the building code and inspections for any building projects within the Town. 

Please call to see if your building project will require a permit. Building projects that do require a building permit are, for example, decks, patios, fences, driveway extensions, room additions, sun rooms, etc. Some examples of those that do not require a building permit are: roof replacement, window replacement, replacing vinyl or aluminum siding, etc.

Garage sale, yard sale signs are only permitted to be displayed on the premises where the garage sale/yard sale is being conducted. No posting of signs on telephone poles, stop signs, street signs or any other type of “public” sign posts is allowed and will be removed. Continued violation of the Whiteland Town Code regarding signs could result in penalties up to $300.00 per day and each day such violation shall occur will be deemed a separate offense. If you need to ask questions regarding this issue, call the Whiteland Planning Department at (317) 535-5531.

“Yard signs” displayed on commercial and industrial properties are considered “temporary signs” that require a sign permit as required by the Whiteland Zoning Code. “Yard signs” displayed on residential properties for things like “Happy Birthday”, “Congratulations”, “Happy Anniversary”, etc., for a period generally not exceeding 7 days are permissible without a permit up to 6 times per year. Any questions concerning this issue can be answered by the Field Inspector at (317) 535-5531.
