Town Hall Meeting

Dear All,

Just a reminder that my next Town Hall Meeting is Saturday, March 24th, from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at Flanner and Buchanan, located at 2950 N. High School Road in their community room (building behind main building).  Department of Public Works Director Dan Parker is going to be our guest speaker.  While filling potholes and strip patching has been the major focus of DPW the last month, there is a lot more that DPW does.  Come learn more about the responsibilities, challenges, and dealing with limited resources that DPW faces from Director Parker.

I thought that many of you may be interested in seeing the map of where they have filled potholes and done strip patching the last three weeks and what their plans are for this week.  It is attached.  Please do continue to report potholes through the Mayor’s Action Line by calling 317-327-4622, by accessing, or by using the RequestIndy smartphone app.  In April they are hoping to have the thoroughfares filled and be able to get into neighborhoods.  So, if your neighborhood has potholes that need filled, please report them right away so they get on the list of potholes that need filled. 

Has your neighborhood registered for “The Great Indy Cleanup” yet?  Unfortunately, many thoughtless people seem to think our streets and roads are trash cans; this litter does not go away on its own.  If your neighborhood has not planned a cleanup for “The Great Indy Cleanup”, it is not too late.  For more details or to register your cleanup through KIB (and receive trash bags and gloves), go to or contact Allie Kast at or 317-264-7555, ext. 116.  Hopefully more neighborhoods throughout the area will sign up soon.  I know that many of our neighborhoods do plan cleanups and there are getting to be more and more individuals or small groups that are keeping areas clean on a regular basis.  Thanks so much!  This is greatly appreciated and truly does make a huge difference.  By working together we can make our area much cleaner and set an example for others around the county.

Attached is information about our annual cleanup on 56th Street from the causeway to Raceway Road.  We have always had a great turnout for this, and hopefully this year we will beat our record of 56 volunteers.  We will have police officers to calm traffic and help keep us safe as we work.  Hope you can join us that day and encourage others to come out and help as well.

Please forward this information on to others who live in our area and may not be on my email list.  Any help in spreading the word is appreciated.

DPW is about more than filling pot holes.
While the major focus lately has been about filling pot holes, there is a
lot more to DPW than putting asphalt into the holes that are in our
streets and roads.  Department of Public Works Director Dan Parker is
going to be our guest speaker and talk about DPW.  Come learn more at:
