At least the new warehouses and shipping centers being built are a FAR cry from the stereotypical seedy ship-yard type buildings that are routine in movies and such.

I just hope that the industry can sustain itself for many many years to come so we don't have 50 1M sq. ft. buildings falling into disrepair.

Two of my friends from church are freight workers...on the dock/warehouse end of things. They earn in the $40-50K/year range. Jobs like that are a good thing, me thinks.
Just wait

wait and see, the council and commissioners will vote to TIF this area, so business gets the break and the homeowners pay.

Why don't they use the 15 warehouses in Plainfield that are sitting empty before they start building more? Leave our farm ground alone. What happens when they take all the farm ground someday, will we have to import all our food? Is this going to be another unfinished project like Garfield Park? Buy all the property, force people to move then let it sit vacant because they can't secure the rest of the financing so it becomes an eyesore and dumping site like the Garfield Park area. Real smart people!

They already have. The commissioners have never met a TIF the didn't fall in love with.

We elect these clowns to represent the us, the Hendricks County residents. They represent the out-of-town developers much more than they represent the local property owners. Typical politicians. Maybe we should raise their pay so they wouldn't have to take money from the millionaire developers.

And $40-$50K warehouse workers? Somebody has been smoking something illegal. Thankfully, the $10-$12/hr workers can go just down the street to Monrovia and rent one of the foreclosures in their new vinyl ghetto.

I don't know what to say, Theme park as far as Six Flags will be a great deal for our city, with all the improvments coming to town with new stadium, state of the art convention center, great new hotels etc. if we want to attract convention attendees to come and attend the conference and as most of the americans who can not afford to have taken a separate vaction with family combine the business with pleasure and bring their families with them. If we have more to offer to them (family oriented/focused) we may see more $$$ in our economy.

Lets face it, what does INDY has to offer, we do not have ocean, lake or mountains. if you to take your family and kids with you while you are on bisiness for 5-7 days out of town would you rather go to Tempa bay,Orlando, Dnever or Charlotte, Indianapolis or Winston-Salem???

I will let you be the Judge plus when was the last time you took your kids to theme park, imagine all the money you spent at kings island or six flags great america or in st. louis not only driving time but to spend money at hotels and stuff why dont we do something here in our very own town and have out of towners spend their money here which will keep up in our houses and will create jobs, look how many schools are with in 50 miles radius from Downtown we will always have plenty of work force and our kids do not have to flip burgers at burger king or sonic.

just my opinion.

But we DO have entertainment. Just go to a County meeting and watch officials jump, squirm and wiggle there way around the issue of a TIF on our parkway. Just like a roller coaster it will make you laugh, scream, get excited and in the end you just want to throw up.
