  • Noblesville Tree Board plants 129 trees, plans Arbor Day events
    4/19/2019 Motorists along Hazel Dell Road will notice new foliage on their drive after the Noblesville Tree Board recently planted 129 trees along approximately a 2-mile stretch south of State Road 32 to Noble Crossing Elementary School.
    “Enhancing the west gateway corridor by planting trees in the median has been a priority of our organization and we were able to use funds this year to beautify that roadway,” said Vince Baker, Noblesville Urban Forester and tree board member.
    Partnering with the Noblesville Street Department, the tree board budgets $100,000 a year for plantings. Typically the money is split evenly between the spring and fall plantings and is used to replace street trees.

  • 4/19/2019 The City of Noblesville notifies motorists and residents that effective on or after Monday, April 22, the intersection of Greenfield Avenue and Howe Road will be closed for seven weeks, weather permitting. The intersection is scheduled to be a full closure to all traffic. During the closure, traffic should utilize the signed detour route of Promise Road, 146th Street and Cumberland Road.
    The intersection was analyzed by the Noblesville Engineering Department due to concerns with vehicle delays and safety. In order to create a safer and more efficient intersection, a roundabout was chosen.
    United Construction Services has been selected by INDOT to construct the roundabout, which costs $847,117.10. The project is funded through a federal grant with the City of Noblesville’s match of 20 percent, which is $169,423.42.
  • ‘Elected’ youth officials help lead city for a day
    4/19/2019 Wouldn’t it be cool to shadow a city or county official for the day? 
    Especially if you’re a kid.
    Tag along to meetings with Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear. Sit in Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt’s unmarked car. And tour the firehouse with Noblesville Fire Chief Greg Wyant.
    They could tour the prosecutor’s office with Hamilton County Prosecutor D. Lee Buckingham II. Sit on the bench with Circuit Court Judge Paul A. Felix. And learn the responsibilities of newly-elected Sheriff Dennis Quakenbush.
  • 4/18/2019 On Wednesday, Hamilton County Superior Court issued an Order Granting the City of Fishers’ Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings and Awarding the City Attorneys’ Fees and Costs against Save the Nickel Plate, Inc. for its filing of a “frivolous, groundless, and unreasonable” lawsuit against the City of Fishers Board of Public Works & Safety due to their litigation in “bad faith.”
    The City says Save the Nickel Plate, led by Logan Day, and Indiana Transportation Museum have repeatedly filed meritless claims and lawsuits, multiple public access complaints, a DLGF hearing petition, three lawsuits in Indiana Courts, and appeals with the Federal Surface Transportation Board – all of which have been dismissed and wasted tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars.
  • Noblesville officials break ground on Midland Trace Trail Phase III
    4/18/2019 Noblesville officials have broken ground on the third phase of the Midland Trace Trail, a 12-foot-wide multi-use path that will connect Willowview Road east to Hague Road. Construction of the 0.9-mile section will be completed this summer.
    “Since the Midland Trace Trail was started two years ago, it has quickly become a frequently used, family-friendly amenity. This trail is especially important as it connects Noblesville directly with our neighbors in Westfield and the Monon Trail to Carmel and Indianapolis,” said Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear.
  • 4/18/2019 More than 30,000 voters in Fishers will have a new polling location for the Primary Election Tuesday, May 7th, as well as future elections. Hamilton Southeastern Schools asked that all polling locations within school buildings be moved due to security concerns.
    The 30 new polling locations were approved by the Hamilton County Commissioners Monday, March 25th. Most of the changes are in the Delaware-Fall Creek Township area. New locations have been secured in area churches and neighborhood clubhouses.
    “If you have previously voted in an HSE school, you can assume you have a new voting location this year,” says Hamilton County Clerk Kathy Williams. “Bright yellow postcards are being mailed today notifying 31,000 voters of their new voting locations.”

  • 4/18/2019 To help end housing discrimination, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development — also known as HUD — on Wednesday awarded an additional $15 million across the county and $125,000 in Indiana to support fair housing organizations working to confront violations of the nation's landmark Fair Housing Act.
    HUD’s grants are provided through the Department’s Fair Housing Initiatives Program (FHIP) to help people who believe they have been victims of housing discrimination and to educate the public and housing providers on fair housing laws. In addition to the new grants announced today, HUD awarded $23 million to existing fair housing organizations last winter.
    “Even though the Fair Housing Act became the law of the land 51 years ago, housing discrimination continues to this day,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson. “HUD will continue to confront housing discrimination in all its forms and advance our mission of safe, affordable housing free from discrimination.”
  • 4/18/2019 A busy stretch of Westfield Blvd. will get a fresh new layer of asphalt this week as the City of Carmel Street Department begins its summer paving projects for 2019.
    Westfield Blvd. will see occasional restrictions and flag-controlled traffic between 106th Street and 116th Street, the one-mile stretch that will have two inches of the old asphalt removed and two inches of a fresh layer of asphalt applied.
    “This has been an especially hard winter and I am pleased that our Street Department is wasting no time in getting out and taking the necessary steps to keep our streets in excellent condition,” said Mayor Jim Brainard.
