Last night at our monthly PTRA meeting we had a surprise visit from Indianapolis Mayor Hogsett. It was completely unexpected and Board members and attendees were surprised. President of PTRA Susan Blair is in the background.
Last night at the Pike Township Government Center it was a full house. About 150 residents from the surrounding area of the old Ropkey 200 acres just west of 465 on 86th Street attended a presentation by Cornerstone Companies, Johnson County’s GCG Investments, and Murry Clark (their land use attorney) on what they have proposed for the land.

Most likely this will continue on through the summer before it gets finalized. The presenters did not have a lot of detail being in their first stages. They took questions for about 2 hours from the audience. Councillor Leroy Robinson was there trying to organize homeowner association meetings.
The mood of most of the crowd was that they did not want this project because of environmental reasons, water runoff reasons, buffering, traffic, and depreciation of neighborhoods.
They introduced themselves at the March Pike Township Residents Association meeting.
Our Northwest District IMPD is going to be having its Task Force Meetings quarterly this year. The first task force meeting is coming up on Thursday, March 9th, at their headquarters – 4005 Office Place Blvd from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m. Commander Lewis will be giving a recap of 2022 in the Northwest District, information about upcoming community events in 2023, and a Q & A. This is a great opportunity to learn more about what is going on in our area as well as being able to ask questions. Refreshments will be served.
This month’s “Coffee with a Cop” will be held on Thursday, October 27th, at 10:00 a.m. at the Panera Bread located 6050 W. 86th Street. This is in the Traders Point Shopping Center, just off of I – 465 on 86th Street. It is a terrific time to get to talk one-on-one with the officers and Commander Lewis from our IMPD Northwest District. See the flyer for more information.
Hope many of you will be able to attend, have some coffee, and enjoy conversations with our officers and others in our community. Let’s have a great turnout! Please share this information with others in your neighborhoods and the Northwest District. See you there.
