The Rocky Ripple Town Council continues working with city and state legislators to ensure there is flood protection for Rocky Ripple. We are pleased to announce that the final flood protection options for our local Rocky Ripple flood wall have been prepared and the report is now available. Two of the potential options allow for saving every house in Rocky Ripple and will meet FEMA certification requirements.
These solutions will be presented at a special meeting to be held at 7 pm on Thursday, September 6, 2018 at Butler University Gallahue Hall Room GH-108. The meeting will be hosted by the Rocky Ripple Town Council, with Butler University, City of Indianapolis DPW and AECOM representation present. Please attend so that you can understand the options and can ask any questions you may have.

The annual Rocky Ripple Neighborhood garage sale scheduled for Sat. Jun 2nd will be postponed. Due to the construction going on right outside of Rocky Ripple, we are unable to put up the big signs at the entrances to the neighborhood for our annual garage sale. Therefore we are postponing the sale until the fall at a date to be announced. Please let Mandy Redmond know of any issues with this or suggested dates for the sale in the fall.
DPW Project Leader Michael Massonne will be at the May 8, 2018 Rocky Ripple Town Council meeting at 7:30 pm to provide updates on and answer questions regarding the Westfield Blvd. Flood Protection initiative.
The first of three question and answer sessions regarding Rocky Ripple flood protection initiatives is scheduled for this Thursday, 31-Aug-2017 at 7 pm at the Town Hall. Town council member(s) will be present to answer any questions you may have on this topic. Residents can also take as much time as they need to review the floodwall rendering drawings put together by AECOM Engineering that show what some of the floodwall protection options would look like along the river.
The sessions are also an opportunity for residents to stop by and complete flood protection surveys if they have not already done so. The survey asks for residents to provide their viewpoints on what should be done for flood protection. The Town Council is working to ensure that a completed survey is obtained from each residence/home owner in Rocky Ripple. The completed surveys will be utilized by the Town Council to determine which option will be pursued for flood protection.
Other future Q & A sessions currently scheduled include following dates:
Saturday, 9/30/2017 9:00 am town hall
Sunday, 10/15/2017, 4:00 pm town hall
