RR Flood Protection Update –Board of Public Works Hearing Held 27-Feb-2019

The first of several public meetings and hearings to move forward with approval of the flood protection plan recommended by the City of Indianapolis DPW (know as Option 3), which saves all Rocky Ripple homes and includes a new levee made up of a combination of earthen, T-walls and I-walls was held on 27-Feb-2019.  This was the first of the meetings noted in the 12-Feb-2019 communication from the Indianapolis Department of Public works that was sent to all property owners affected by the proposed new levee.  A copy of that letter is posted on this website at the following link: Flood Protection

The outcome of the February 27th Board of Public Works meeting was that three board members voted for approval of the Rocky Ripple flood protection plan.  Two board members voted against the proposal.  As the board requires a quorum in order to pass a resolution, it was determined that another vote would be held at the next scheduled meeting, when two additional board members would be present.  The next Board of Public Works meeting, at which time this second vote will occur, is scheduled for 13-March-2019 at 1 pm in the City County Building Public Assembly Room on Floor 2.  The meeting on March 13th will not be a public hearing, so public comment for or against the proposal will not be allowed.

The tentative meeting schedule for gaining approval to move forward with the flood protection plan was as follows; as another meeting of the Board of Public Works was added, the upcoming meeting dates will be pushed out to the next scheduled meetings of the Acting Bodies.  We will keep you posted of the new dates and times.

Your Rocky Ripple Town Council strongly encourages you to attend the upcoming public hearings and voice your support of this crucial initiative for our community, as City officials need to hear it from you, not just us.  Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions in the meantime.
