{Courtesy: IBJ} The Lebanon City Council on Monday night unanimously approved a special zoning classification covering part of a 9,000-acre innovation district that is in the works northwest of the city’s downtown.

The LEAP Lebanon Innovation District Planned Unit Development sets development standards for about 6,000 acres of the planned high-tech district in Boone County along Interstate 65 between Indianapolis and Lafayette. LEAP is an acronym for “Limitless Exploration/Advanced Pace.”

A planned unit development, or PUD, is a tool that defines and regulates proposed development and guides developers on permitted uses and design standards.

The properties rezoned as a PUD are east of I-65, north of County Road West 300 North, west of the CSX railroad tracks and south of County Road West 375 North. Additional parcels are west of I-65, east of County Road North 500 West, north of County Road West 50 South and south of County Road West 400 North.
