New Rocky Ripple Floodwall Survey Advisory Committee Members Sought

Apologies if you are receiving this notice twice; we are experiencing some technical issues with our website. 

Interested Rocky Ripple residents are sought to be a part of a new Rocky Ripple Town Council Survey Advisory Committee for the Rocky Ripple floodwall project.

The mission of the Floodwall Survey Advisory Committee will be to share information with residents to ensure as many as possible are informed on the status of the floodwall project and to subsequently help scope, develop and disseminate a town-wide survey established levee floodwall project and provide feedback for decision making to the Rocky Ripple Town Council.

This committee will play an important role to make sure clear and honest information is communicated and that Rocky Ripple property owner input in the form of a survey is obtained from all town property owners. This committee will be responsible for providing inputs into the survey development and will also help support the creation of a fact sheet to share related to the floodwall project.

To review the full charter for this committee, click here:  Rocky Ripple Floodwall Advisory Committee Charter.

If you have questions about and/or are interested in being part of this committee, please contact your Town Council representatives.

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
