Action: Request to approve appointment(s) to Town Boards and Commissions passed

Action: Request to approve settlement agreement for 106th Street and Crosspoint Boulevard right-of-way passed

  • What it means: In 2010, the Town of Fishers began pursuing constructing a roundabout to replace the intersection at 106th Street and Crosspoint Boulevard. The town did not have right-of-way at three of the four corners – which is now being purchased by the Town of Fishers from Crosspoint Seven LLC for $60,100. Construction is slated for 2013.

Action: R061812B passed

  • What it means: This resolution is a new policy that is mandated by the state. Two new statutes were enacted by the State of Indiana that directly tackle nepotism in municipalities. In order to be in compliance with the law by July 1, human resources at the Town of Fishers recommended the policy that prohibits the hiring of employees that would directly work for a relative.

Action: Ordin031912 passed

  • What it means: There was a request to approve this ordinance, which is an amendment to the Sunbeam PUD. This was its third reading. The ordinance allows for the adoption of standards for a new residential development at the corner of 116th Street and Cumberland Road. The developer, Watermark Residential, already had the rights to build, but this seals the deal. However, town council members included a caveat that would cede right-of-way to the town and allow for the construction of a dedicated right-hand-turn lane on 116th Street if needed.

Action: Ordin031912A passed

  • What it means: After the third reading, this request to approve an amendment to the River Place PUD passed. The amendment added 17.2 acres to the housing development. Those acres are set to adopt the standards that the original River Place development had in mind.
