Homepage

Welcome to the official website of the Town of McCordsville, Indiana.
 
 
With a population nearing 8,000 people, our community is now the second largest municipality in Hancock County. Incorporated in 1988, McCordsville is beginning to feel the effects of being conveniently located near several thriving cities and towns, including Indianapolis and Fishers.
Due to the Governor's Stay at Home Order, we are conducting council meetings, boards and commission meetings and public hearing via Zoom until the Order has been lifted.  To observe or comment on a particular meeting, go to the Agendas and Minutes tab and you will see the Zoom link to the meeting.  Please remember that you must install Zoom first.  It is a free download at Zoom.us.
Town Hall
 

McCordsville is located in the northwest corner of Hancock County just south of Geist Reservoir, bordering both the City of Lawrence in Marion County and the City of Fishers in Hamilton County. We are conveniently located off of State Highway 67 and less than 10 minutes from I-70, I-69, I-465 and SR 234.
 

The Community Vision as identified in the recently adopted Comprehensive Plan is:
Guided commercial development and unique
Residential opportunities with valued
Open spaces and
Well-managed community services and amenities
That complement a
Healthy local economy
