I think there is a very legitimate concern that Whitestown has taken an aggressive stance in terms of annexation. Eagles Nest is a community in western Eagle Twp. that was recently annexed by Whitestown. These are homes that were sold as "Zionsville" homes because they are located in Zionsville school district. Now, they are going to have a Whitestown address and that will significantly effect their property value. This all happend in spite of the fact that nearly every resident in the area was opposed to the annexation! That move by Whitestown is what prompted the swift action for Zionsville's annexation. This was brought to Zionsville by the Twp trustees, not vice versa. If this doesn't happen or people sit around to "think" about it, it will only be a matter of time before Zionsville is completely landlocked by Whitestown. Whitestown will grow into the space spoken about in the article and Zionsville will lose its identity completely. That's the reality of it.

I can't decide if the annexation is good or not. I moved to Zionsville because it is small, and somewhat "rural" (compared to much of Indy's urban sprawl.) However it would give Zville more control about what goes on around us. What are the pro's and con's. I'm really worried about the big box developers (walmarts) and mass-neigborhood builders and how it will effect them.

What a choice - would I rather be annexed by Zionsville or Whitestown? Whitestown certainly seems like a bad choice...they don't know what they're doing and are just on a power grab. On the other hand, the leadership in Zionsville has thus far been incredibly arrogant. Can't they just both leave us alone? We LIKE living "out in the country."

Sounds to me like there is going to be lawsuits over taxes, utilities, property values and more. This should have been addressed many years ago.

Time for a mayor and to be a city with a council and more.

Who's watching this at a federal level?

I just heard someone was digging a hole with an excavator and found a diamond or gold or something. Just north of Zionsville. Did anyone hear that?

Anson was once Eitlegorge property and much of it another oil guru out of Texas.

Sounds like the insiders wanted to avoid, crime, taxes, underage drinking and drugs, and addressing social issues so they could make some money.

Word has it they harrassed folks who knew this fact.

Where are the feds?
