Longest-Serving Noblesville Council Member Retires

Councilman Brian Ayer

Noblesville Common Council Brian Ayer has decided not to run for another term on the Noblesville City Council after 20 years of service to the citizens of Noblesville.

“I am proud of the progress our City has made since I began serving on council in 2003,” Brian Ayer said.

“We have worked together as a city to maintain our identity as an unmatched historic community while moving forward on projects that honor our heritage and make necessary investments to support our residents and businesses.”

Ayer has been a Noblesville resident since 1964 and graduated from Noblesville High School in 1976. He and his family started Ayer’s Real Estate in 1978, which serves Noblesville and Hamilton County.

Ayer has served as Council President twice and has been the Chair of the Council’s Roads, Building & Land Acquisition, and Wastewater Committees.  He has also been a member of the Noblesville Architecture Review Board.

As an At Large official, Ayer represents all of Noblesville and its voters in city limits and Noblesville Township.  A tireless advocate for the best interests of the city and its residents, Ayer’s vision and diligence has been instrumental in many impactful city projects, including Hamilton Town Center, the Pleasant Street east-west corridor, expansion of the city’s trail network, acquisition of Finch Creek Park, the Levinson mixed-used development, construction of a new eastside fire station, and partnership with the county for construction of the 146th Street corridor.  Since he began serving on the Council, Noblesville’s population has more than doubled.  Ayer has been a prominent voice for preserving the hometown charm of the community while funding necessary infrastructure and public safety enhancements.

“I am looking forward to spending more time with my wife, children and grandchildren and concentrating on my real estate business,” Ayer said. “We are looking forward to staying a part of the community and enjoying everything Noblesville has to offer. I always say, if you can’t find something to do in Noblesville, you’re not looking hard enough.”

In the community, Ayer is a member of the Noblesville Chamber of Commerce and served on the board and as a past president; member and past board member of Noblesville Main Street; and past board member of Habitat for Humanity of Hamilton County. He also is a member of First United Methodist Church, Noblesville Elks Lodge and Noblesville Moose Lodge.

Ayer’s term will end on Dec. 31.
