The development and design of all property within Intelliplex shall comply with the following requirements.
These development standards shall replace all City of Shelbyville Zoning Ordinance requirements for the
property, unless otherwise specified. All infrastructure is to be built to City of Shelbyville standards as a
minimum. The provisions of this development standards section may be enforced by the City of Shelbyville as a
part of the Intelliplex Planned Unit Development zoning district. Enforcement shall be consistent with the
provisions established by the City of Shelbyville Zoning Ordinance (as amended from time to time) for all other
City zoning districts.
For the following categories of development standards all land use areas of Intelliplex shall conform with the
requirements of the like categories of development standards established by the City of Shelbyville Zoning
Ordinance. Any amendments to these requirements of the City of Shelbyville Zoning Ordinance shall also serve
to amend these requirements for Intelliplex. Intelliplex shall comply with City of Shelbyville Zoning Ordinance
development standards for:
Minimum Lot Area
- parking amount, materials, and space dimensions;
- industrial emissions and impacts;
- environmental sensitivity,
- flood hazard area protection,
- entrance and driveway dimensions,
- sight visibility at intersections,
- telecommunications facilities,
- satellite dish, and
- fence, hedge, and wall height and use.
The minimum lot area for the Medical Campus and Open Space Areas shall be as shown on the Intelliplex
Detailed Plan Map. No further subdivision of the lots established in these areas shall be permitted. The General
Business and Neighborhood Services Areas may be further subdivided. The minimum lot area for the General
Business Area shall be 1 acre.
Minimum Public Street Access
All lots shall be required to have legal access to a public street for both vehicle and pedestrian traffic. In no
instance shall this be interpreted as requiring any lot to have direct frontage on a public street.
Maximum Impervious Surface
All hard surfaces on each lot, such as buildings, parking lots, sidewalks, and interior drives shall be considered
impervious surface. In no instance shall the impervious surface on any lot in the Neighborhood Services, General
Business, or Medical Campus areas exceed 90%. In no instance shall the impervious surface on any Open Space
area lot exceed 20%.
Front Yard Setback and Build-to Areas
In all instances, the front yard shall be measured as the distance between the edge of an adjacent public street
right-of-way and the nearest structure. A front yard shall be required wherever a lot has frontage on a public
common area or other feature of the development (which may or may not be located on the same lot) provides a
separation from the right-of-way that is at least equal to the required front yard setback no additional setback shall
be required. Where a front yard setback is required, no portion of any structure may be located closer to the
right-of-way than the minimum setback indicated. Where a build-to line is established, all structures shall provide
a front yard exactly equal to the build-to dimension for a minimum of 75% of the building length along the street
frontage. In the Neighborhood Services and General Business - Urban areas, awnings, projecting signs, cornices
and other architectural elements of buildings may extend up to 5 feet closer to the right-of-way than the identified
build-to line. No encroachments of eaves or other building features into required setbacks shall be permitted in
any other land use area. In no instance, in any land use area shall any portion of a building or structure encroach
on any public right-of-way. Required front yard setbacks and built-to lines shall be as follows:
Side & Rear Yard Setback
- Basset Road:
The minimum setback shall be 30 feet.
- Intelliplex Drive:
All structures in the Neighborhood Services area shall conform to either a 5 foot or a

to any buffer, common area, or landscape area located along the property lines of the lot. No structures shall be
placed in any easements or rights-of-way of record even if a setback line is indicated inside those easements or
rights-of-way. Structures may be permitted to be placed on easements of record only after the holder of the easement gives consent. The rear yard shall be defined as the yard opposite the front yard. Corner lots shall have
two front yards and two side yards. Wedge shaped lots shall have two side yards and one front yard. Side and rear

sculptural and other art elements. These elements shall not be included in the calculation of sign height, or face
area. The total area of all facade signage area shall not exceed the maximum square footage allowed as calculated by the formulas set forth in this document.
No sign shall be placed within Intelliplex without the proper permits from the City of Shelbyville, consistent
with the procedures of the Shelbyville Sign Code. These PUD development standards for signs shall serve as the
