Town of Rocky Ripple

Welcome to the Town of Rocky Ripple!

The town of Rocky Ripple is a small nature friendly oasis located on the northwest side of Indianapolis, in Washington Township within Marion County, Indiana. The town is nestled between the Central Canal and the White River; only two traffic-supporting bridges over the canal provide access to the town, thus resulting in the town’s slogan “I’m not lost. I live here” that appears on Rocky Ripple bumper stickers. The slogan was created because of the many drivers that have gotten lost by crossing one of the bridges into the town and being unable to find their way out over the years. 

Based on the latest 2020 data from the US census, the current population of Rocky Ripple is 652. Rocky Ripple, Indiana is the 12,201st largest city in the US. It was founded in 1928; and the town was incorporated as an “included town” as part of Unigov in 1970.

Situated near the Broad Ripple area and adjacent to Butler University and the Butler Tarkington neighborhood, Rocky Ripple offers a high quality of life coupled with low property taxes and convenient access to shopping, recreation, and downtown Indianapolis.

Monthly Rocky Ripple Town Council meetings occur the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 pm. Meetings are held at the Rocky Ripple Town Hall and can also be accessed through Zoom:

Rocky Ripple Floodwall Survey: Call for Committee Volunteers and Notice of Informational Meeting to Discuss Project on Thursday, 06-Oct-2022 As previously communicated, the Rocky Ripple Town Board is working to organize a stakeholder vote on the City of Indianapolis’ proposed floodwall project. As part of this initiative, the Board wants to ensure stakeholders have relevant facts they need to vote in favor or against the project and that all residents are well informed about the project. This vote will provide valuable input as the Rocky Ripple Town Board works to make a final decision on the project. The Town Board is looking for a small group of community members to assist in development of a fact sheet and pro and con list to outline key details related to the City of Indianapolis’ proposed floodwall project. This committee will also assist in dissemination of the fact sheet and will serve as “boots on the ground” to funnel questions to the town board and remind eligible residents to cast a vote related to the project. The committee will play a critical role in ensuring that the virtues and drawbacks of the project are well understood. A charter and call for committee volunteers was previously made.  However, based upon further discussion between Town Board members and input from residents the charter for the committee has been simplified and is attached here.  The charter also includes a proposed definition for the stakeholders that will be able to vote.  Should the committee have change suggestions to the definition, this will be entertained by the Town Board. A meeting for individuals interested in working on the committee is scheduled for Thursday, October 6, 2022, at 7:00 pm at the town hall. Town Board members will present the thought process behind the committee charter, expectations for the committee project and associated timelines, and answer any questions potential committee members may have.  We thank those of you that previously volunteered to be on the committee and hope to see you there.  We also welcome others that wish to participate. Sincerely, Your Rocky Ripple Town Board Megan Hulland           Mandy Redmond          Randy Sanders
