FOLLOW THE MONEY, folks! From Mark E. Sanders and MES Properties, and the other sprawl-pushers involved in this, to Hendricks County Commissioners Eric Wathen and David A. Whicker, among others.

That should clarify EXACTLY why this is happening. You should get in their faces and TELL them the jig is up!

If you're sick of hearing about it, then why are you
reading and posting on here? These people that live in the area are going to have to live with this
decision *every single day*. And since they live in the ajoining county, they have no say, or vote, in the matter. The Hendricks County commissioners played a dirty hand, and they know it.

The reason I keep reading and posting is for entertainment purposes only. I think it's funny to hear what people have to say that don't even live near the area, they just want something to gripe about and a voice to be heard. Sometimes I think they just want to see their names posted. I do live in the area, in fact, I live right across the street from where the plant is going to be and I still don't give a &%$#. I mind my own business, don't care what my neighbors do and expect the same from them.

So if you live in the area, then you know that most of your neighbors don't want this, and yet you're just making fun? Nice guy....

Somehow, I just don't believe that you live there, but that it's you that loves to post trolling messages to stir up the pot.

If you find it funny and entertaining than you must not be sick of it since you are still posting on here. Which means either your first post was a lie or your second post was a lie. Or maybe they both are. In any case I hope you enjoy the concrete and the lower property value (although you were probably lying about where you live also).

I am very disappointed in the zoning change since I bought a house in Monrovia specifically to get away from the sprawl that has taken over Plainfield and Avon.

I'm curious about something and maybe someone on here can answer my question. The area we are talking about is on a stretch of road approximately 2 miles long between 39 and Hazelwood Road. They have rezoned 175 acres. I'm not sure exactly how much acreage is on that 2 mile stretch but what would happen if they started developing that entire 2 miles? What if other developers came in and started approaching all the land owners on that road, wanting to buy the ground for development, similar to what they did on 1000 south just north of I70? I don't think it will happen anytime soon but I look for that to happen in the next 5-10 years. Wouldn't those land owners come out way ahead by selling out to other developers? I'm trying to look on the bright side for those people. I'm sure most of them wouldn't want to relocate since most of them are elderly folks who have been there for decades, some may not even be around to see it happen. I'm just curious because I would think they would be sitting on prime property being so close to an interchange, the 175 already rezoned and the implement auction already there. Any thoughts???

Lower the property value.... it'll lower property taxes. I don't see the problem.

Well you should see the problem. Come up to 96th street and see the dust all over the place. You have to roll up your windows to drive by. Dust is constantly be poured into the air. Then there are the trucks that stir up the dust even more.
