OK. You Fishers folks all of you must follow the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) Ordinance No.090605A except the Town. Isn’t that nice, the Town can’t follow its on rules. It’s too much of a burden. They are also exempting them selves from the park lighting requirements. The ink on this ordinance is not even dry, adopted October 16, 2006 with an effective date of November 15, 2006 and already the Town can’t follow its own rules. Now it’s not like a new batch of Council people got elected and needed to change things, its same old Country Club Town Council crowd. What they want to do is light up the parks and have them glow in the night. Three things for all of you to consider, one is the waste of electric power to light up the night, second is the waste of personnel to change the bulbs and maintain the system and last is the neighbors who live in the area. Well they will get a benefit, on night when the parks are lit up they can save on their electric bills. They won’t have to turn on their lights. The glow of the parks will light up their homes. Oh, I almost forgot, they don’t believe in global warming or do they do since it will be warm longer into the nights and even in December people will be able to play outside, you need lights.
Of course they could have forgotten about the lights and have people go home after dark, but then families would have to spend some time together in their own homes.
Now don’t forget the next time someone from Planning and Zoning tells you, you have to follow the UDO, tell them you just voted yourself exempt just like the town did for itself.
