The Noblesville Times 24-7
  • Week in Review
    1/21/2020 Changes in parking dominated the weekly news as shoppers, workers and visitors to downtown Noblesville get used to the changes in parking regulations. In addition to that, a great group of 25 people connected to Noblesville Schools were named to a very select and prestigious honor. And, as always, there were a lot of happenings going on in Noblesville and Hamilton County.
    Parking in downtown Noblesville is simpler once the new parking ordinance went into effect this week, according to city officials. The changes include adjusting hours of enforcement, location of free and time-restricted spaces and new short-duration spots.
  • John Bundy awarded Sagamore of Wabash
    1/20/2020 Hamilton County artisan John Bundy was presented with the prestigious Sagamore of the Wabash by State Rep. Tony Cook (R-Cicero) last week.
    Bundy is known for his work in crafting wooden duck decoys, which can be found across the world. During former Gov. Robert D. Orr’s Administration, Bundy was often commissioned to develop the decoys, which were frequently given to Asian officials on the governor’s international trade mission trips as gifts.
    “The duck is a sign of goodwill, prosperity and good luck in Asian culture,” Cook said. “It is amazing to think a local artisan’s impact stretches far beyond the Hoosier state and America’s borders.”
  • 1/17/2020 Riverview Health Foundation will host Women of Vision Presents: An evening of Inspiration at Marriott Hotel at Keystone at the Crossing in Indianapolis on Thursday, April 29, 2020. This year’s keynote speaker will be Minda Dentler, athlete, speaker and polio survivor.
  • Goodrich’s bill moves to full house
    1/16/2020 The House Family, Children and Human Affairs Committee today approved State Rep. Chuck Goodrich’s (R-Noblesville) bill that aims to break barriers for students from low-income families.
    Goodrich’s House Bill 1009 would exempt students’ income earned through internship and work-based learning programs from their families’ Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families eligibility requirements. Because the earned income could jeopardize their families’ eligibility for assistance, Goodrich said some students may turn down those opportunities.
  • Changes in downtown parking go into effect Tuesday
    1/15/2020 Changes in downtown Noblesville to simplify the parking ordinance take effect Tuesday. These changes include adjusting hours of enforcement, location of free and time-restricted spaces and new short-duration spots.
    Many of these changes were suggested by downtown merchants, who played a key role in developing a balanced approach in the parking pilot after communicating their need for more parking availability. Downtown parking will be separated into three locations: Paid parking lots, free on-street spaces and two consecutive hours of free parking per day in the new tic-tac-toe board or hashtag area (the Downtown Square and one block away in each direction).
    “These changes should make weekday parking downtown easier for residents and visitors,” Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen said. “Our historic downtown is the heart of our community and this program benefits the majority of those who depend on parking in downtown. Less than 500 feet from every downtown business, there will be free parking available all day.”

  • 1/14/2020 Indiana American Water has lifted the boil water advisory affecting nearly 17,000 customers in Noblesville and a portion of Fishers. The precautionary boil water advisory was issued on Monday afternoon after a loss of pressure caused by equipment malfunction at the White River North water treatment facility.

    1/13/2020 Noblesville Schools released the names of the 25 distinguished community members the system is honoring as Noble Millers in celebration of the 150th anniversary. The exclusive award is unique to the anniversary celebration, having never been given before and with no plans for the district to do so again.
    Selections were made by a committee of district leaders from public nominations that were gathered over several months. These are not intended to represent all 150 years of Noblesville Schools. Honorees were chosen based on their exceptional service, support, accomplishments or contributions to the district.

    Indiana American Water has issued a boil water advisory for all customers in its Noblesville, Ind. service area after a loss of pressure at the White River North water treatment facility caused by equipment malfunction earlier today. The treatment facility is back online after repairs have been made and company personnel are in the process of obtaining samples throughout the distribution system.

    Customers in the affected area are advised to drink and cook with tap water only after boiling it for approximately three minutes. Tap water can be used for washing/bathing.

  • 1/11/2020 State Sen. Victoria Spartz (R-Noblesville) has announced she is suspending her race for state senate to explore a run for the U.S. House of Representatives’ 5th District seat currently held by Susan Brooks.
    Brooks announced last June she would not seek a fifth term. The Carmel Republican’s decision shocked many political observers.
    Spartz is currently in her first term in the state senate, filling the term of long-time State Sen. Luke Kenley. Spartz announced some time back that she was running for another term. But on Thursday, she said she was reconsidering that option.
