ViewPoint Cloud

The City of Fishers has recently changed to the ViewPoint Cloud platform to manage and request city permits and inspections, make payments, submit proposals, and collaborate with city planners and other officials through the online portal.

ViewPoint Cloud is an all-in-one citizen service platform for permitting, licensing, inspections, and enforcement. Create an account or log in to ViewPoint Cloud to manage your permits and requests.

Current Planning & Plan Review

Current planning and plan review encompasses the administration of Fishers’ codes, ordinances, and development standards for new development and redevelopment. Please visit the Current Planning & Plan Review page to learn more about current planning, applications, and plan review.

Downtown Planning

Fishers created the 2030 Downtown Plan to identify a vision for reinvestment and redevelopment in the downtown area, known as the Nickel Plate District. The Downtown Plan led to the creation of a conceptual Master Plan for the District that illustrated the vision of the plan. To implement and regulate this plan, a new code, the Nickel Plate District Code (PDF) needed to be implemented.
