Green Factor

The Green Factor a new and unique, score-based code requirement that integrates landscaping with stormwater management techniques and other sustainable efforts. This scoring system gives many choices to meet the code – not a one size fits all. Landscaping plays an important role in how development looks and functions. Well-designed landscaping can:

  • Improve the look and feel of a neighborhood
  • Reduce stormwater runoff
  • Clean and filter stormwater
  • Cool during heat waves
  • Reduce greenhouse gasses and improve air quality
  • Provide habitat for birds and beneficial insects
  • Decrease crime

Indy's landscaping truly becomes GREEN Infrastructure!

If your project is required to meet the Green Factor (over 2 acres in size and disturbing 0.5 acre or more), you must reach a minimum score established by the zoning ordinance: .30 for new development and .22 for redevelopment/ additions. A “menu” of various features are available to use to meet the Green Factor, including green roofs, rain gardens, vegetated walls, native trees and shrubs, planting along the sidewalk, creating a food garden or using permeable or photocatalytic cement. Depending how an area is developed, it can be counted multiple times in the Green Factor calculation!
