The June 9th Rocky Ripple Town Board meeting will be held at the town hall at the usual time (7:30 pm). If you plan to attend, please note that we ask that all attendees wear a face mask and practice social distancing while at the meeting. Thanks for helping us keep everyone safe.
Hello Fellow Rocky Ripplers,
We hope everyone has continued to stay safe during the past month. We do have a couple updates to share. First of all, we will be holding the May Rocky Ripple Town Board meeting as scheduled on 12-May-2020 at 7:30 pm. However, to maintain safe distancing, the meeting will be held as a teleconference using Zoom. To listen in, use the information below. You will need to provide your name in order to join the meeting.
Also, we have received inquiries regarding letters that owners of property along the river in Rocky Ripple received during the past week from DLZ, a subcontractor to AECOM and City of Indianapolis Department of Public Works. The letters were to let affected property owners know that survey work will be done on their properties in the near future. AECOM has been hired by the city to serve as its technical representative for the Rocky Ripple flood protection initiative. You may recall that AECOM is the engineering firm that came up with the plans that allow for protection, while saving all homes in Rocky Ripple.
We wanted to provide you with additional information on this. The surveying is being done in order for the city to obtain specific information in preparation for the Rocky Ripple floodwall project. The survey will be used for identifying design and land acquisition (easement) needs/details for the proposed floodworks and establishing cross sectional information for river modelling necessary for completing the project. This land surveying is a preliminary engineering task foundational to other future engineering tasks. The work should include no or very minimal clearing of vegetation to complete.
If anyone has any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact your town council members:
