Town Run / North of 96th expansion?
« on: February 18, 2022, 09:37:32 AM »
I saw the news a few months back about the original project at NW quadrant of 96th and allisonville being nixed, and the land to be used for parks, and then I saw that a new project with additional land being set aside for the park was moving forward.

Anyone here providing input?  Will TRTP extend with some magical underpass and/or use of 96th street bridge to get to that location?

Would be awesome to have the interconnected White River setup with the Fishers and Carmel parks that roll up to the river being prime for trails up and down as has been discussed in these channels previously.

Did anyone (like from HMBA or from the members here) have input in the design and construction of the new trails?


Town Run / New Signs
« on: September 15, 2015, 01:04:13 PM »
I really enjoy the new signs.

It adds character and it is refreshing.

I hope I am not off base in this, but this is "OUR" trail and collectively we volunteer and keep it going.  (Some volunteer much more than others, so thank you!)

It is neat to see it have some flair (needs 37 pieces of flair).  I see these types of signs at other trails and in small beach cities for actual navigation.

Thanks to whoever placed them.  If they were illegally placed, then we should make them legal!  =)

HMBA Forum News and Information / New Opportunity? Zionsville MTB Trails?

Zionsville could soon be acquiring 55 acres for a new park.

Developers of the proposed Vonterra subdivision off of Zionsville Road in south Zionsville presented a plan to the Parks Board on Sept. 9 that included donating about half of the land in the 110-acre neighborhood to the town to use for a park. The topography of the site makes it unsuitable for building homes or anything else.

Its quite an expansive and attractive piece of ground, said attorney Mike Andreoli, representing builder Ryland Homes. Its grown over in many aspects and pretty rough, but there are some really wonderful terrain parts of it.

The site was previously the home of Wormans Clean Fill and Organic Recycling, which closed after more than 30 years in business. Wormans owner Canda Smith said the high property taxes made it difficult to continue operating in Zionsville. She has retired and plans to travel with her husband.

Smith said developers have approached her about purchasing the property for years, and she is pleased with the plan to use half of the site for a park and preserve much of the nature.

I see great things in the future for the land, she said. Ive tried to do it right.

The proposed park is separated from Starkey Park by Eagle Creek on its western border. Plans call for it to include a southern expansion of the Zionsville Rail Trail.

Andreoli said the land could be a good fit for off-road bike trails. The site also includes a pond that is estimated to be 30 to 40 feet deep.

It was literally the clearest body of water that I think Ive seen in the state of Indiana, said Steve Bullington, president of the Parks Board.

The proposed 107-home Vonterra subdivision will be discussed at the Zionsville Plan Commission meeting Sept. 21. The Parks Board was unable to vote on the land donation because it did not have a quorum.

And then the picture (in article since it does not display) shows it connecting down to Zionsville Rd...now if only they would connect it further south.  A start to a safe route into Park 100 from north side ( the train track continues....).  And a connector to some mtb trails.

Looks like it is definitely flood zone material just like most of the Starkey Park trails.  Take a look at exhibit 2 in this doc.  I am guessing all blue is flood zone.

Is this something on the visibility of HMBA?
