INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis Historic Preservation Committee voted to approve a redevelopment project on Mass Ave.
The committee voted 6 to 1 in favor of building a new Firefighters Credit Union in a meeting Wednesday evening.
The project will expand the Indianapolis Firefighters Museum at 748 Massachusetts Ave., and will not use taxpayer money, according to Indianapolis Professional Firefighters Union Local 416 Secretary Scott Williams.
Williams said the project will include expanding to the east onto land the union currently owns, and will include new offices, additional meeting space and increased space for Survive Alive and expansion of the museum.
The committee will continue to look at plans for a new parking lot and office space until October’s hearing.
