Signs Of Summer

Summer in the Town of Brownsburg means plenty of flowers are in bloom! While these plants beautify our Town, they also serve an important role as rain gardens and pollinators. These green infrastructure techniques save the Town money by reducing stormwater runoff, which limits flooding.

Over the past few months, the Town of Brownsburg Water Department has been taking measures to address the nuisance of discolored water many customers experience. Filter media was replaced and several repairs were made at the north water plant, resulting in a significant decrease in the amount of iron leaving the plant. Due to the work, iron levels leaving the plant have dropped from .67 to .01-.02 parts per million. While the Town's water quality consistently meets the Indiana Department of Environmental Management's standards, the lower iron will certainly improve water appearance. Some customers are already noticing improvements, and over the next several weeks customers who live farther from the water plant should start seeing clearer tap water. Later this year, the Town will flush hydrants and take further measures to help improve the issue.

The decisions made by Town leaders can often have a direct impact on your quality of life. For example, capital improvements may detour your regular commute, fee changes might impact your budget, new parks and trails offer you more recreational opportunities. That’s why we work to make it easy for you to get information about what your local officials are considering and planning.

In addition to Town Council, all of the boards and commissions regular and special meetings are open to the public. Find meeting dates and see the agendas on the website calendar. Most boards and commissions post agenda packets on the website in advance, so residents can view the materials that will be considered at the meeting.

When it comes to capital projects, and road construction projects in particular, Town of Brownsburg staff and officials often get questions about how those are prioritized and why schedules often overlap causing closures in more than one travel location at a time.

Many of our road projects receive federal funding. Since 2012, the Town has secured more than $49 million in federal aid for $76 million in completed, ongoing and planned capital improvements. Since those awards are decided five years in advance, the funding agency dictates in which year construction can commence. Meanwhile, needs for other improvements emerge and can result in simultaneous projects.

Indiana does have a short construction season from May through November. That can cause construction to be extended from one year into the next. Keeping a lane open to traffic, as opposed to complete closure, also extends project deadlines. Other factors than can delay or lengthen work schedules include utility relocations, bad weather, equipment breakdowns, and even environmental issues.

Do you wash your car at home? You may not know that by washing the grime off your vehicle you might actually be causing harm to our local waterways. When you wash the car in the driveway or on the street, dirt, oil, grease, metals, and detergent-laden water runs into storm drains and then into our streams, rivers, and lakes. Just as soap destroys dirt and organisms on your vehicle, it will do the same in creeks and other bodies of water. Read the full blog post for some helpful alternatives.

You've probably heard a lot of talk about mixed-use developments this year, and if you’ve driven N. Green Street lately you know that construction is well underway on the site of the old St. Malachy church and school. The public-private partnerships between the Town and developers will transform the area into a pedestrian-friendly economic center. The investments totaling nearly $90 million will include office suites and a co-working space, luxury apartments, retail spaces, restaurants and a parking garage.

Brownsburg Town Council was recently presented the results of the 2017 Citizen Survey, which asked a random sample of 1,500 residents to rate a variety of factors impacting our community's livability. The Town has been conducting this biennial survey since 2011 to get residents' feedback that can help local officials identify areas for improvement and make decisions about the services the municipality provides to its residents in the future. Read on for highlights of this year's survey results.

Unless you have been living under a rock, we know that you are aware of the many capital improvement projects the Town has underway or completed to improve traffic flow, pedestrian travel and safety over the last 18 months. But, did you know that many of those projects are made possible with federal funding? Town administration has secured more than $38 million from the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for projects between FY 2012 to FY 2021. Often times, the Town covers just 20 percent of construction costs.
