The Indianapolis Department of Public Works has distributed the Request for Information (RFI) for interested Engineering companies to respond with their ideas for construction of the floodwall for the White River-Rocky Ripple Flood Control Improvement District Flood Risk Reduction Project. See attached copy for details:
Interested Rocky Ripple residents are sought to be a part of a new Rocky Ripple Town Council advisory committee for the Rocky Ripple floodwall project.
The mission of the Floodwall Advisory Committee will be to gather information from residents about what will make a positive or negative impact in regards to the established levee floodwall project and provide feedback for decision making to the Rocky Ripple Town Council.
The committee will provide advice, insight and guidance on floodwall issues to aid the town’s programs for the proposed floodwall and related initiatives. The committee will work with residents living along the wall where it is located on personal and public (Rocky Ripple) property to make the project as palatable as possible. The charge also includes representation of the wants, thoughts and desires of residents living inside the town’s boundaries but not along the river; as well as the residents in the nine homes that have been left out of the project where riverbank stabilization is to also be a part of the project.
