    2/19/2018 “Noblestories,” a partnership between the Noblesville Preservation Alliance and Hamilton County Television, will give a voice to Noblesville’s history by tapping into the current popularity of public storytelling.
    “Noblestories” will give today’s residents a glimpse into Noblesville’s past through the eyes of people who have lived here the longest, its senior citizens.
    “When cities grow quickly, it’s easy to lose sight of how we got here. It’s important to make those cultural connections to the past that help explain the present.

  • ‘New economy’ challenging state officials
    2/17/2018 FISHERS – Indiana is struggling to navigate the crossroads between the old and new economies.
    Traditional business has been met by non-traditional avenues of the economy, including AirB&B, Uber, online shopping, people renting their own vehicles, and even Tesla. Many of these new economic avenues are not part of the traditional tax structure and state legislators are working to find ways to include them.
    Several legislators, including Rep. Kathy Kreag Richardson, Rep. Tony Cook and Sen Victoria Spartz, met with members of Hamilton County’s four chambers of commerce, to give a “halftime report” on action at the Statehouse during this year’s short session.
    “This new economy affects Hamilton County is so many ways,” said Rep. Todd Huston. “We’ve built a lot of things off of taxes generated by car rentals, hotel room rental fees, we just didn’t imagine how this new economy would affect our funding strategies,”
    House Speaker Brian Bosma said Indiana isn’t alone, other states struggle with the issue as well.
    “We’ve found ourselves at this intersection between the old and new economies and we’re working hard to find solutions that benefit both,” he said.
  • 2/16/2018 A threat, made by a Noblesville High School student against the school, made Thursday, were found not to be credible, the corporation said in a statement released Thursday night.
    The threat, made during a bus ride home from school, was reported by two students using the corporation’s confidential “SpeakUp” reporting app on the students’ iPads.
    NHS adminstrators and Noblesville Police immediately made contact with the students making the threat and determined it was not credible.
    Administrators have taken appropriate action with the student to address this issue.
    “We would like to send our appreciation to the NHS students who chose to speak-up and share the concern. It's important as a community that we take the time to listen, be cognizant of things happening around us, and report them when we aren't comfortable or are concerned. These two students did the right thing. We ask that you have the conversation with your child about reaching out to an adult when they have a concern or reporting their concern via Noblesville Schools’ SpeakUp app,” the statement read.
  • 2/16/2018 Many of the Indiana Transportation Museum's materials, cleaned from its site in Forest Park, are usable products necessary to safely operate its antique engines, passenger cars, rolling stock and rail lines.
    That’s the conclusion of the ELAM Group, a Noblesville-based environmental firm assisting ITM with cleanup of the Forest Park property.
    ITM lost its lease in Forest Park, and is required to clean up the site. It has completed the first stage, and is ready to progress to underground testing.
    The Indiana Transportation Museum has completed the first stage of its cleanup of its site in Forest Park, and is set to begin step 2. 
    Step 2 will require soil borings to test the soil beneath the top soil.
    “The next phase of the testing involves sub-surface soil testing which requires drilling into the soil to see if any pollutants have been released into the ground. The number of borings to be taken is over 5 times more than typical. This below ground testing will take considerable time, and samples will take time to analyze,” said John McNichols, ITM Board chairman.

  • OutHouse to offer work-sharing spaces

    Noblesville’s first co-working space, the OutHouse, is scheduled to open mid-March at 540 Westfield Road.
    “OutHouse is like the Starbucks of coworking. You’ll eventually find one on every corner,” said Taylor Jennings, owner.
    Jennings is the owner of Jennings Commercial Interiors, a seller of high-end office furniture. “Our primary line of business is commercial office furniture,” said Jennings, owner of Jennings Commercial Interiors. “But we saw a need for people who may have to travel to work, or who work remotely, to having a space they could use as an office.”
