DYER | Dyer officials hope to make the northeast corner of Hart Street and U.S. 30 a bit more appealing for developers.

The council has amended an ordinance that prohibits drive-thrus in the area of the intersection, which is in a special use district.

The ordinance amendment allows a property owner within the district to apply for permission to put in a drive-thru.

Late last year, the Redevelopment Commission became the sole owner of the corner. Vacant for 18 years, the parcel was once owned by multiple owners, which hampered its development, town officials said.

The corner is considered vital to the town’s redevelopment because it is a gateway to Dyer. Hart Street and U.S. 30 is the first intersection motorists encounter after crossing the town line.

In December, town officials said developers already are showing interest in building on the corner.
