Letter: Concerned: A looking ahead response



(Per) your great article (“Looking ahead,” published Jan. 2) with details on the infrastructure of the City of Noblesville:

Thanks for conveying the message; however, I am so tired of hearing how much our local politicians are working hard for our city. I am constantly reading about growth, and we don’t seem to have a clue on the current appearance of the city.

What has happened to the previous years of research and past planning ideas that have been submitted? I did notice your mention of just that, but why has this been so stagnant? I’m certainly interested in the future real estate ventures and investments of the stakeholder groups. Do we have the names of the stakeholders, or is this open to everyone?

If I may, I would suggest Noblesville remove the train track from downtown and move it south on Eighth Street and develop the area a couple blocks down. Make this a tourist attraction with lots to do for kids and adults. It would be nice to increase the overall appearance from closed-out structures or utilize them as a flea market instead of our over-priced $11 million park. If we chose to keep the track north toward Tipton, then I’m certain land is available for tourism dollars. Tourism pays the bills!

I look forward to your future articles.
