Fishers Town Council makes a big deal about the great new sports complex they built out in the middle of nowhere on Cyntheanne Rd.
Then they make a big deal about taking over zoning of the area to protect it from landfills that no one was going to build. It was just to scare people into thinking about land fills.
Well maybe they knew something none of us knew, I doubt it. Or maybe they just don’t care about the area but want to make sure no one else does. Well the county still has physical control over the area until Fishers can find someone with a bulldozer and wants to build out in nowhere. But at least the County cares and is going to fix the roads and they invited Fishers to take part. Now this gets funny, here is a copy of an e-mail I have obtained on the conversation between the County and Fishers:
From Hamilton County to Fishers:
“The Hamilton County Highway Department is preparing to Let a contract to resurface the following locations on the above referenced roads.
* 126th St. from Cyntheanne Rd. to 2,643’ E. of Cyntheanne Rd.
* Atlantic Rd. from S.R. 238 to 2,663’ S. of 126th St.
* Atlantic Rd. from 696’ S. of 126th St. to 323’ S. of 126th St.
We plan to convert these chip sealed roads to an asphalt roadway. Our treatment will consist of 2” of HMA Intermediate, 19.0mm and 1” of HMA Surface, 9.5mm with a 2’ compacted aggregate shoulder.
Our records indicate that the Town of Fishers has jurisdiction over the following road segments:
* 126th St. from 2,643’ E. of Cyntheanne Rd. to Atlantic Rd.
* Atlantic Rd. from 2,663’ S. of 126th St. to 696’ S. of 126th St.
* Atlantic Rd. from 323’ S. of 126th St. to 126th St.
This e-mail serves as an inquiry into your interest in having the all or part of these road segments included in the Counties contract. The estimated cost breakdown for Fishers segments are as follows.
* 126th St. from 2,643’ E. of Cyntheanne Rd. to Atlantic Rd. - $70,800.00
* Atlantic Rd. from 2,663’ S. of 126th St. to 696’ S. of 126th St. - $51,800.00
* Atlantic Rd. from 323’ S. of 126th St. to 126th St. - $ 9,600.00
The estimated cost to the Town of Fishers for all three segments would be $132,200.00.”
Response from Fishers:
“Sorry for the late response but I didn’t want to leave you hanging after you went through the effort to provide us qty’s and estimated costs. In as much as I would love to participate it appears the funds just don’t exist. Thanks for thinking of us.”
Maybe if Fishers hadn’t wasted two million dollars on the Geist annexation and thousands of dollars for the middle of nowhere Cyntheanne Park, that has had problem after problem and is already very late in opening. They could take care of their citizens. But then again this shows why Fishers should be a City – no one seems to be responsible. You would think they would jump at this and have all the roads look fixed. I hope on the bad sections with the pot holes they post signs: “Now Entering the Town of Fishers” and the County on the repaired sections posts a sign “Leaving Fishers and now Entering Hamilton County.”
Vote Yes to become a City.
