That's $21 million that should have come from the private sector, not the pockets of the taxpayers.

umm...yeah...

the private sector should have paid for the improvement and extension of primary public corridors, like 146th street...

just what exactly should your tax dollars be going to? charity?

Another sign of the progress and growth of the Noblesville/Fishers I-69 corridor. A great area to live, invest in, and call home. While so many people mistakenly want to try to bring it down with inaccurate criticism, the business community and thousands upon thousands of people realize it is a great location to work and live. Looking forward to the continued growth and new neighbors.

And countless millions in new salaries, jobs, new homeowners, a giant boost to the local tax revenue base. The business sector is the backbone of the community. In a situation like this, the financial benefit more than pays for the improvements and investments in the local infrastructure. You act as if this money vanishes into thin air. It handles the public portion while the private business portion provides their input through years of more jobs, paid taxes, contstruction investment, bringing in new residents, etc... Nice work Hamilton County, Fishers, and Noblesville, you have a nice vision coming together.

Explain to me how the Private Sector isn't providing its input in this situation? The long-term benefit impacts every local resident for the better even those who criticize it. The public does have a vested interest in maitaining and upgrading necessary infrastructure, roadways, utilities, in cases where massive business/commericial investment greatly impacts an area for the better.

Look at this, my tax dollars actually benefiting me! Bring on the new and improved roads!

The retail shops will bring a nice alternative to Castleton. And hopefully between the business and retail shops, more of the empty houses in the area will be filled.

the Villages at Saxony look likegovernment housing. The whole Saxony project is a mess and bringing the wrong crowd to Hamilton County. It looks like a new Castleton.

It's great...but how about widen I-69 from 465 to Exit 14 to handle the increased traffic. Traffic planning always occurs last in Indiana. build the roads first then let the developers come in...or better yet make the developers pay for part of the road expansions.

doesn't look like any new businesses coming. just businesses relocating from Indianapolis and other parts of Noblesville. What a waste.

The construction along I-69 is the initial work that preceeds the 2012 massive I-69 North expansion. The interstate is sceduled to be expanded up to 12 lanes in the heavier traffic regions. If I understand correctly, the entire project starts at 465 and is to go up through Anderson, but not sure what occurs from Muncie on through Fort Wayne. This is and will be a priority for Indiana.

The recent 116th street intersection project helped tremendously. The 238 exit will help to spread out commuters across 116th/37/238 and will give people options and to meet the traffic demands. I can easily take any of those exits and get home about the same time. The project now underway is to widen the 465 exits to ease congestion off of I-69 and to prepare utility work for the future expansion. Hence the cemetary relocation and interior underground work.

It seems to me they are doing an adequate job at addressing the traffic concerns now and in the future. Is it done as quick as Joe Commuter would like??? Probably not, but you can't please everybody all the time. And it appears from reading hundreds of previous posts on various issues, many people in Indy can't be pleased at all.

So, what, should we just tell those busiensses that if they need to move because their current location is too small with no ability to expand that they should just go out of business or move to another state? That and do you know for a fact that absolutly no new business are being built or may be built in the future? Come on, at least try to think outside your narrow view.

Funny how our city government thinks we have such short memories.(I have lived in old central Fishers since 1987 regardless of what my ISP is listed as)

I remember a big news story from the early days of when Fishers began growing, where our town council proclaimed that they weren't going to stand for businesses and developers moving in, tearing up our streets, and leaving the existing locals to be taxed to pay for more streets or repair the old ones.
They were going to levy taxes on the newcomers to pay for the infrastructure they caused to be needed.

Going by their declaration of long ago, that $21 million had to have come from the entities are going in there.

Surely our town council didn't lie to us? LOL

Yeah, geez, who would want a 500,000 to 1,000,000 dollar home in a great school district. Sure don't want that crowd around. Saxony looks like an incredible project to me. And how does that new Simon outdoor mall compare at all to Castleton. Along the interstate, outdoors, great access. Don't see the similarity.

Poor city, county, regional, and state planning will bring to life Indiana's own version of the LA's I-101 and will give the rest of the country a good laugh that Indiana with a dwindling population can manage to create a traffic jam reminisent of the worlds largest cities.

New Urbanism is undeniably a great idea to combat the typical suburban sprawl. To integrate a mini-town around a village center and mix use of business, shops, townhomes, apartments, parks/greenspace, lakes, paths is one of the smartest things suburban towns can do. It gives a centrality to suburban areas which adds to a community feel and for future growth. You can alter and modify New Urbanist areas in the future, you can't do much to continuous neighborhood sprawl. Of all the things going on in Fishers/Noblesville, Saxony should be one that is exempt of serious criticism. It is a great idea.

If you are unfamiliar with New Urbanism, look into it. A change from the norm of suburban sprawl. A centrally focused "mini-town." All the basic amenities of a town compressed into a tight-knit mix-use area.
