Where do you get that? Whitestown and Fayette are the towns mentioned in the annex debate.

gee, no, I don't think anyone in Z'ville wants anything to do with Whitestown. You'll notice most of the growth is outside the area controlled by Zionsville, but still in the ZCS district. That's because the developers realize if they put the residential in Whitestown or Lebanon, and not in Zionsville's school district, no one would buy the homes...

its not Zi'ville pushing this development; its being pushed on them...

God help us all if Whitetown controls this. I hope the County at least wins the county's Redevelopment Commission control over the project.

Maybe now Whitestown afford to can clean up its OWN self. Tearing down all the burned out and vacant houses could be a start. Then get rid of that phoney-baloney car lot (That has had the SAME cars on it for over two years)...is that a 'front' for some kind of 'other' business?? We could use a real gas/convenient store that stays open past 6 P.M.!! AND more sidewalks. Just don't let our clerk touch the money.

No, because Whitestown can never get anyting right in 30 years. They are STILL trying to fix their water and sewer system. The water looks like milk, and smells like a swimming pool, and then costs twice what any other municipal would charge for GOOD water. Whitestown knows just enough to be allowed in the deep-end of the pool, but watch-out, they aren't very good swimmers. How they ever got in a position of power is downright scary!!! Sort of like Curley, Larry, & Moe showing up at a fire with hoses and axes!!!

Hmmm, That's funny. I have worked in Whitestown for over 6 years now and I have not experienced milky water or a smell in the water unlike when I turn on the tap in Down Town Indy and get Clorox. Granted, my job is in the new industrial park, so I don't know what the residents are experiencing but I would think that the water would be from the same source.

Actually Z'Ville would prefer Whitestown to build their own schools and stay out of theirs.

Sorry but I think you have it wrong. Most of Whitestown are in the Lebanon school district. Get it right before you post.

So when exactly is Whitestown going to be able to put together Police and Fire protection, not to mention a Street Department for the newly acquired areas?

I think you read it wrong. My point was the residential portion of Anson is mostly to be built in ZCS district, not in Whitestown or Lebanon, because people moving to the area would rather put their kids in ZCS than Lebanon Schools. Anson is not Zionsville's idea...its Duke's plan, with the backing of Whitestown and Lebanon and Boone County, to put a lot of commercial and retail into their part, and stick the ZCS residents with the bills for new schools as people move to the housing in ZCS. There's little benefit for Zionsville in this...

Well, here's a question... why is the Anson project being "controlled" by Whitestown when the Anson project is in Zionsville?
As the previous post said, anyone with an actual Whitestown address... their kids go to Lebanon schools, not Zionsville schools. So, if the Anson retail, commercial, and residential are all in Zionsville... I do believe that there would be a benefit to Zionsville (taxes). And get your uppity shorts out of a bunch... the Anson project still seems to be conforming to your uppity Zionsville standards. You don't like it, move farther out and away from Indianapolis... but I hate to break it to you, every suburb that touches Marion County will soon be developed with commercial and retail whether you like it or not. Look at any other major urban center (Chicage, New York, Miami, the list goes on)... any suburb touching those respective cities grows with retail and commercial. Some of you people who have never left Indiana amaze me.
And to finish off, if your kids go to Zionsville schools and have your attitude... I don't want my kids (in the near future) to go to your Zionsville schools anyway and develop your attitude. They'll be better off in Lebanon schools.

You're mistaken. MANY people that have a Whitestown address live within the ZCS boundaries. School corporation limits do not follow addresses, or other predetermined physical limits on a typical map. Any retail built in the ZCS limits would be in Eagle Township, where a large portion of the Anson residential is going. Taxes off the commercial buildings are in a TIF district. That money goes to pay off the public bonds that were sold for infastructure improvements. The residential taxes are the sole payer of the added school, fire and police costs.

I wonder which Zionsville attorney is enjoying this squabble as he runs to the bank representing the developer and turning his back on real issues in z'ville? Dig deeper.

Well, maybe I'm wrong... but looking at this link:
http://www.zcs.k12.in.us/community/town/maps....
it seems that ZCS only cover Eagle Township and Union Township. Unless there are Whitestown addresses in Union Township (which there might be, I'm not sure)... then ZCS covers only Zionsville addresses.
And if you dig farther on the ZCS website, you'll come to this for a residency test:
http://www.zcs.k12.in.us/resources/AcceptProo...
It says, specifically, you must have a Zionsville address. So, it seems to me that people with a Whitestown address do not go to ZCS... again, unless there are Whitestown addresses in Union Township (and there could be, I just don't know that) it seems only Zionsville addresses go to ZCS. So, I could be wrong on the school boundaries... but, from what I'm looking at, I don't think I am. But feel free to correct me.

On another note, you also said that the residents who will be living in the Anson project (the residential is in Eagle Township)... their property tax money will go to Zionsville... and in turn contributing for the school, fire, and police... so, my point is, Zionsville people need to quit complaining and deal with it.

There are a few people with Whitestown postal addresses that are in the Zionsville school district. I only know this because I went to Zionsville and one of the people I went to middle school and high school with technically had a Whitestown postal address. He lived there on 550 South next to Zville West Middle School (it of course didn't exist 14 years ago). Those addresses on 550 S are Whitestown addresses but attend Zville.
