Noblesville Common Council approves ordinance amendments, rezone


Compiled by Sadie Hunter

The Noblesville Common Council met Dec. 22 for its last meeting of 2015, approving several items. The next common council meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Jan. 12 in the City Hall Council Chambers, 16 S. 10th St.

What happened: The council approved ordinances for a change of zoning and the adoption of a preliminary development plan for the property on the southeast corner of Little Chicago Road and Ind. 38.

Why it matters: This project will implement a change of scenery at a busy intersection with 63 single-family home lots and three commercial outlots – to be called The Retreat at Mill Grove – spurring development on the first of the four corners. The to-be-developed neighborhood will be a northwestern neighbor to the existing Mill Grove subdivision.


What happened: The council introduced an ordinance amending the October-adopted salary ordinance for appointed officials for the City of Noblesville for 2016.

Why it matters: Changes in the 2016 salary ordinance were made to accommodate changes in staff, particularly the change of the 2016 deputy mayor.


What happened: The council approved the 2016 agreement between the City of Noblesville and Firefighters Local 4416.

Why it matters: Between the two organizations, this agreement continues the working partnership that currently exists for the 2016 year.


What happened: The council approved an interlocal agreement with Hamilton Co. Parks for funding of the levee trail.

Why it matters: Noblesville Parks Director Brandon Bennett said the item was simply an agreement to allow Hamilton Co. to encumber funds they currently already of, amounting to approximately $25,000. He reiterated that the agreement was just that and that no city money was being spent.
