Thanks to Town Manager Kiefer, the Town of Rocky Ripple has again been awarded an INDOT Community Crossings Grant for street paving. Globe Asphalt will perform the work September 28th-30th, weather dependent, and we ask your patience and cooperation during the paving process.

The roads will be milled, cleaned and filled with asphalt to match the adjoining streets. A grinding machine, dump trucks, and paving machine are part of this operation. Parking and through-vehicular-traffic will be affected during this operation. Once the asphalt is placed and compacted, the street will be reopened to traffic as soon as possible. We ask that you do not park near the roadways to be paved. Below is a list of streets to be paved.

Section 1: Ripple Rd. from 530 Ripple Rd. to W 54th St.

Section 2: W 51st St. from Annette St. to Riverview Dr.

Section 3: Clarendon Rd. from W 52nd St. to W 53rd St.

Section 4: Byram Ave. from W 52nd St. to W 53rd St.

Section 5: 5100 Crown St. (dead end) to W 52nd St.

Section 6: Riverview Dr. from 5140 Riverview Dr. to W 52nd St.

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
