    After six intense weeks of robot designing and building, students, parents, teachers, and industry professionals will assemble in Plainfield this weekend to participate in the Plainfield District Event as part of the FIRST® Robotics Competition. 

    Local high schools such as Carmel’s TechHOUNDS, Fishers’ Tiger Dynasty and the SHAMROCKBOTICS of Westfield will represent Hamilton County in the 34-team competition. 

    Teams from across Indiana compete in both qualification and elimination matches in hopes of high-scoring performances, which will catapult them to the State Championship and potentially the World Championship held in Detroit in April.

  • Noblesville rolls out Bike Share program
    3/23/2018 The weekend forecast predicts snow, but that didn’t stop Noblesville from rolling out the newest addition to the city. 

    In a partnership with Zagster, Inc., a provider of private and public-private bike-sharing systems, Noblesville launched its own bike-share program that will give residents and visitors a convenient and healthy way to get around. 

    “This has been a longtime coming,” said Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear. “We’ve got the perfect place — a beautiful place — so we’re just excited to do this.” 

    Starting Friday, 10 cruiser bikes became available between the city’s two stations — Forest Park and the Riverwalk — for residents to use at their convenience. 
  • Weather postpones Easter Egg Hunt
    3/23/2018 The weekend weather forecast and concern for the public’s wellbeing and safe traveling has caused city officials to postpone the annual Noblesville Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday. A decision on when the Noblesville Parks and Recreation Department and Hare Chevrolet will host the free community event at Forest Park has not been made.

    “Forecasts of inches of snow and freezing rain are not the signs of spring our annual Easter Egg hunt represent – or conditions parents want young children to be outdoors in,” said Parks Director Brandon Bennett. “It appears that Jack Frost does not want the Easter Bunny and his colorful eggs to have their day in the sun. By postponing we can host the event in safer weather conditions ensuring a fun time is had by everyone and the eggs and treats inside are not frozen.”

    The city will announce the rescheduled date once it has been decided on its website, social media and through the Times of Noblesville.
  • Police Chief requests officers for promotion
    3/23/2018 On Wednesday, Noblesville Police Chief Kevin Jowitt petitioned the Noblesville Police Merit Commission to consider merit promotions for two officers.

The Police Merit Commission approved the request and both officers will be officially sworn in at their new rank Monday. 

    Hendricks was hired by NPD on April 19, 1999. Prior to the approval of his promotion, Detective Hendricks served in the Criminal Investigation Division as an investigator. In addition to his role as an investigator, Hendricks is also assigned duties in the internal affairs section and is a certified crime scene technician. Hendricks will remain in the Criminal Investigation Division as a supervisor.

  • Sixth annual “Welcome to Fairyville” event brings magic to life

  • Road repairs for two projects upcoming

    Noblesville will begin reconstruction of two necessary road projects in the coming weeks. 

    The first project is the repair of 171st Street between Cherry Tree and Willowview roads. The Noblesville Street Department has made temporary fixes to the roadway throughout the winter until this more permanent repair could be made.

The road will be closed to through traffic for the duration of the project.
