RICHMOND, Ind. – Richmond City Council unanimously approved the zoning changes requested for Porter Advertising and Reid Health at its first meeting in 2022 on Tuesday.

Porter Advertising plans a 4,500 square foot office building on three parcels of land totaling approximately 0.462 acres on the south side of North G Street between Chester Boulevard and North Ninth Street. The plots are currently vacant with the exception of two notice boards.

Council approval allows the three parcels to move from urban residential zoning to general commercial zoning. City staff and the Richmond Plan Advisory Board both recommended approval of the application.
