BRVA Executive Director - Colleen Fanning By Mario Morone


Colleen Fanning became Broad Ripple Village Association Executive Director in April of last year. She recently reflected on her first nine months and her outlook on Broad Ripple’s future. (The BRVA office is located at 818 Broad Ripple Avenue.) “I’ve been the Indianapolis Marion County City-County Councilor since January 1, 2016 and have worked closely with the BRVA. I am 15 year resident of Broad Ripple. I lived in the north part of the village by the Monon Trial for about six years. I got married and moved to the village core, so I’ve seen lots of different sides of the neighborhood. I’ve had a small business (Gray Market Wine) for six years. It was my full-time job when I ran for City-County Council in 2015. Running that business full-time was not conducive with being the best public servant I could be. When the opportunity arose for me to join BRVA, it seemed like I fit with the direction the board was going. It was synergistic and serendipitous, and it’s been wonderful. I get to spend to fulltime hours in Broad Ripple as Broad Ripple goes through its next evolution, which is really very exciting. I get to spend my part-time hours on the rest of my district. I feel really fortunate that it’s worked out this way. During this part of my life, public service is my focus,” she explained. Describing the area to first time visitors, Ms. Fanning said, “Broad Ripple is Indianapolis’ original cultural district. We have a really rich history that dates back to the 1800s. It’s been a vibrant, cultural community that has gone through many different phases. There’s more to it than nightlife, and we’re poised to grow in a really healthy direction. We’re really one of the area’s only self-contained villages with dry cleaners, banks, groceries, a post office and medical services. It’s a truly village experience. You can get to everything walking or biking. There’s a nice mosaic of cultural opportunity appropriate for the whole family. We’re connected to Broad Ripple Park and the Towpath. We’re the only community connected to the Canal and White River. We’ve working on activating the white river. There are terrific opportunities for us to Colleen Fanning - City-County Councilor take advantage of those assets. Broad Ripple is and BRVA Executive Director. the most recognized Neighborhood in the state of Indiana. It has a reputation for being artistic, vibrant AND Cultural. WE ARE going into the future with an eye toward being family friendly, diverse and cultural in our offerings.” Reflecting on her accomplishments in 2018 with BRVA, she mentioned, “I would say thus far, we have really being been updating the systems and processes of the organization. We’ve been modernizing the way we do things, like our customer relations management, accounting processes and economizing our monthly office overhead. We have been focusing on working smarter and not getting bogged down with duties that take away from executing our mission. Our mission is to advance and engage the community by keeping Broad Ripple safe, clean, healthy, vibrant and welcoming for people who live, work and visit here. This organization is focused on doing things that need to be done that people don’t necessarily know get done. Recently we had some armed robberies. We were the first phone call from the IMPD North District Commander. We immediately met with the police and business owners involved, encouraged cooperation, and made sure the news media was helpful. The suspect was apprehended within two weeks and we are proud of that. We focus on things like public safety, vagrancy and litter. We mow the medians, public spaces and bring in tens of thousands of visitors through promotion and events - like the Home Tour, Duck Race and Carnival. We promote the village outwardly and take care of the village behind the scenes. This year has been about understanding where we are and where we need to go. It’s been about realizing efficiencies, fixing processes and doing the unsexy stuff that our members won’t immediately notice. 2019 is about engaging our members and telling our story. It’s a two-fold goal, helping the rest of the city and region understand Broad Ripple now and the Broad Ripple of the future. 2019 is the year I’m so excited about. Our members will see some of the changes soon and in a positive way.” Ms. Fanning listed some long-term objectives. “Enforcing the envision Broad Ripple plan is one of our biggest objectives. It may be time to revisit and modify that plan, but it serves as a great guide for a strong community. The goal is to increase the quality of life in the village.” “I would say one of our long term goals is to do a better job on engaging our members and the community at large as we have a big need for volunteers for events that the community enjoys. I encourage everybody who loves Broad Ripple to reach out to us on our website at You can fill out a contact form at: (, attend our spring and fall meetings, volunteer and get more active. We not a tax-funded group, but a non-profit organization made up of dozens of businesses and residents that want to see the community succeed. We want everyone’s input and want everybody to succeed. We are not exclusive by any means,” Ms. Fanning noted. She mentioned various ways citizens can stay connected with the BRVA. “They can reach out e-mail information at and on the website to subscribe to our newsletter. We are on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and have a blog at: ( We have board meetings that are open to the public. We have two big public meetings. There are myriad ways to get involved in our community as a volunteer and lend time and talent and give us your input,” she emphasized. With her background as City-County councilor, small business owner and BRVA Executive Director, Colleen Fanning is helping make Broad Ripple a better place to visit and live.

From your editor: I have received several requests for a reprint of the 1968 publication “A History of Broad Ripple” by The Junior Historical Society and The Riparian Newspaper, both of Broad Ripple High School. We haven’t published this information since 2004 and many new residents are now in Broad Ripple and have never read it. Where we come from is important. It has some errors. I will try to correct them as they appear. I will attempt to reprint the entire booklet. I will include each section as space permits. -AH

In 1820, a commission met at Conner Prairie Farm to select a new site for the capital of Indiana. The place of this meeting is now known as the Conner Prairie Museum near Noblesville. The commissioners decided to move the capital from Corydon to a location in the center of the state. The site, later named Indianapolis, was chosen not only because of its central location, but also because it was situated on supposedly navigable White River. As early as 1821, pioneers began settling the area near the present site of Broad Ripple. Yet it was not until 1837 that people started coming to the area in great numbers. In late 1836 or early 1837, construction began on the Indianapolis link of the Central Canal, one of the many projects in canal building which followed the completion of the great Erie Canal in 1825. John Burke, who had helped in the building of the Wabash and Erie Canal, which was to extend from Evansville to Terre Haute, supervised the construction job which involved many people. With the influx of these canal workers, settlements were laid out in the area. April 20, 1837, Jacob Coil from Virginia plotted 48 lots seven miles north of Indianapolis on the south bank of White River. The first written reference to the name “Broad Ripple” was found in 1837 in Jacob Coil’s will. According to Barry R. Sulgrove in History of Indianapolis and Marion County (1884), Coil named the area Broad Ripple because the “ripple in the river at this point was the largest and widest in the country.” This ripple was so large, it was said that only one man, Isaac Simpson, could throw a stone across it. Prior to 1837, the area was called “Ripple” or “Riffle” by the local settlers. May 17, 1837, four weeks after the Coil plots were laid out, James A. and Adam R. Nelson plotted 32 lots south of Coil’s. The settlement was named Wellington in honor of the Duke of Wellington and his great victory over Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815. The two communities, separated by the canal–Broad Ripple to the north and Wellington to the south–were intense rivals from the very beginning. This rivalry arose from the desire of each settlement to be the most important village at the head of the newly started canal.

Founder In 1835, Jacob Coil, his wife, and children left their home in Hamilton County, Virginia and moved to Indianapolis. Two years later, Coil surveyed 48 plots of land northeast of Indianapolis on the south bank of White River–the area which became Broad Ripple.

This photograph in the original pamphlet was labeled as being of Jacob Coil. Sharon Butsch Freeland, Local Historian, contacted us several years ago with an observation. “The photo cannot possibly be of the Jacob Coil who founded Broad Ripple, since he died two years before photography was first introduced in England and France. Photography didn’t come to the United States until after 1839. This photo is probably his son, Jacob Conrad Coil, who was born in 1818 and died in 1878.”

This completes Chapter 1 of the booklet. Chapter two will appear in a future issue of the Gazette. -AH

Calendar .Sights.Sounds.Places.

Petition #2018-CZN863 / 2018-CVR-863 Hearing before the Metropolitan Development Commission continued from December 27, 2019 to January 24, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. This petition is to open an Edward Jones office at 6537 Carrollton Avenue. This house recently housed Ashland Gallery and Stu’s Studio. The proposed new business use of the existing house would not affect the residential exterior, except for a small sign.

I am a life-long resident of the Broad Ripple area. My family has been in Broad Ripple for many generations. Jacob Coil platted and named Broad Ripple in 1837. Two of his daughters married into my family in the 1870s. My grandfather Girstle Hague was a mail carrier at the BR post office and a charter member of the American Legion Post #3. My grandmother Helen Dawson Hague worked at the Broad Ripple National Bank in Mustard Hall that became Fletcher Trust, then AFNB, then Bank One, and now Chase. My great grandparents John E. Hague and Nora Hague lived at 6148 N. College Avenue and 6170 Guilford Avenue. My great grandparents John Dawson and Nora Ringer Dawson lived at 6122 Carrollton Avenue. My 2nd great grandaunt and uncle, Sarah Coil Thompson and Hamlin Thompson, lived at 6116 Guilford Avenue. My uncle Glen Hague worked at TV News and at Hoster-Roberts Ford, which is now Passwater’s and the Old Pro’s Table. My great-grandfather, grandmother, uncle, father, sister and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, and was Assistant Band Director at BRHS, now band director at Crispus Attucks High School. As a board member of the BRHS Alumni Association, he is an organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1940’s through the 1950’s held the first Sunday each June at Riviera Club. For many years, I have wanted a newspaper that answered my questions. Where did that store go? Why were those people digging on the corner? What happens at that business? The Gazette is that paper. You will get an unbiased look into what is happening in Broad Ripple because I have no financial interests in Broad Ripple, nor am I affiliated with any of its organizations. I am simply a resident who is passionate about the area. You will also read about the history of Broad Ripple. This history continues to expand as I uncover new sources of stories and photos. The Gazette’s area of coverage has no real boundaries. Historically, the town of Broad Ripple extended down to 54th Street. The goal of the Gazette is to share with readers stories that are within 10 minutes or so from the heart of Broad Ripple - covering events in the Midtown region. Also, Broad Ripple is one of the seven Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other districts as we can. One question I often get is how an article gets into the Gazette. We do not accept payment for articles. Article subjects are picked by me for inclusion based on the interest to the residents and visitors to the Broad Ripple area. Since this is a bi-weekly paper, we will not be able to cover news as it happens. Rather, our focus is on issues that are not time sensitive. You will probably never see these stories anywhere else, so getting them a week or so later will be much better than not at all. We try to include a new/recently opened business or longtime business feature article in each issue. I have hundreds of stories planned, but if there is something you want to read about, please let us know. I think you will enjoy the Gazette. I know I enjoy bringing it to you.

Buzzing Around Town with Nora Spitznogle

Happy Saint Valentine’s Day, darlings! I’m a big fan of celebrating Saint Valentine. We can all use some love this time of year, right? Not just romantic love - although that would be okay - love for my family, our neighbors, love for the musicians and artists who share their talents, the proprietors who open their doors to us, and you dear readers. Have fun celebrating!

Byrd & The Words Saturday, February 9 Books & Brews South 3808 Shelby Street - all-ages, 8-10 pm, free

I’m a big Jeff Byrd fan - he’s a great songwriter, guitar player, and singer. He’s celebrating the of his new CD, “A Night of Stories and Song.” The record is a musical memoir of his years in Bloomington. I can’t wait to hear it!

Any other Leslie Knope fans out there? I so identify with the Parks and Recreation character -- hard-working, (mostly) cheerful, unrealistically optimistic and a proud Hoosier. Leslie created Galentine’s Day, celebrated on Saint Valentine’s Day Eve, as a chance to women to get together and celebrate “ovaries before bovaries.” Plenty Lifestyle carries artisan-made jewelry, art, and home goods. A good deal of them are Indiana made - Leslie would be proud! Plenty is donating 10% of the day’s proceeds to Girls, Inc Indy.

Nora managed CATH Inc coffeehouse at 54th Street and College Avenue for seven years. During that time she hosted hundreds of local and touring musicians, both at the coffeehouse and her home. When CATH closed in 2004 and the music was no longer coming to her, she had to wander from her corner of Broad Ripple to see what is happening elsewhere.

Poetic Thoughts

by C.W. Pruitt II

Oppressed / Freedom I have lived in some very poor neighborhoods. In each of these neighborhoods I have always noticed the resiliency of certain Souls living there. Souls which exude Love and peace despite a difficult environment. This poem is for those souls:

Poem For The Oppressed Some of the most oppressed people I have ever known were also the most religious people I have ever known. They were politically and economically oppressed, but their hearts and minds were free. They were free enough to get out of their own egos and Love others without restraint. This poem is for the oppressed who are truly free. N E W

Broad Ripple Park to be reduced in size to make room for doctors’ offices

On January 16, the City of Indianapolis’ Department of Metropolitan Development approved the proposal of IndyParks (Resolution 2019-R-006) to transfer Broad Ripple park land so it could be used by Community Health Network or a similar group for a doctor’s office or clinic in exchange for building a new community center. The land surrounding the current community center and associated parking lots all the way down to the White River are no longer part of Broad Ripple Park. The transfer of the land from IndyParks to DMD was approved to start implementation of IndyParks controversial Broad Ripple

Park master plan recommendations. Friends of Broad Ripple Pool, already concerned about the plan to close the outdoor pool, spoke out against the proposal at the meeting. “There are plenty of other locations for a new Community Hospital outpatient clinic,” stated Broad Ripple attorney David Dearing. “These include the vacant Marsh grocery store, the soon to be vacant Macy’s store at Glendale Mall, as well as Broad Ripple High School,” he continued. “No way should it be located on our scarce park land,” he said. “The Broad Ripple Park outdoor pool is an asset to the entire City,” continued Broad Ripple resident Kathy Rosenberg said who enjoys swimming and sun bathing at the facility. “Many have learned to swim at the facility,” she noted. Use of park land for something unrelated to park usage sets a dangerous precedent in a city that already has too few parks, the group noted. “There is no need to transfer any land to the City of Indianapolis at this point,” continued Dearing. “We are also concerned that the transfer may include the existing swimming pool. Over 500 signatures on a petition were given to the Mayor in August asking that the pool be saved.” The Friends of Broad Ripple Pool is instead recommending that IndyParks sell naming rights to raise funds for the pool, the Community Center, the tennis courts, the outdoor pavilion, and the trails instead of trying to raise funds by putting private facilities on precious park land. They also want to explore outsourcing of operation of the pool as well as longer pool hours, staying open through Labor Day or beyond, opening on Memorial Day weekend, and not being closed Mondays. To help stop the Broad Ripple Park land grab, join Friends of Broad Ripple Pool on Facebook. Also call Community Health Network and ask that they find a different location. Also let our City-County Councilor, the Mayor, IndyParks, and the BRVA know you want them to support halting this harmful decision to allow non-park usages on park land. Parks are for people, not doctor’s offices.

Feb 1 - Feb 14, 2019

IndyParks will now put out to bid its proposal again. Last year only Community Hospital/ Community Health Network expressed an interest. The Hospital currently operates a clinic on Broad Ripple Avenue.

Regional Rail Corridor Advocate Runs For Office

Frustrated with Fisher’s refusal to consider a joint rail and trail use for the Nickel Plate regional rail corridor (which runs from 10th Street in downtown Noblesville all the way to Noblesville), rail advocate Logan Day of Save the Nickel Plate is running for mayor of that city. Join Save the Nickel Plate on Facebook and tell Indy DPW to support a joint rail trail use. The corridor is already set up that way in Indianapolis as anyone who has ridden the Monon Trail knows.

Governor Nixes Train To Chicago In Draft Budget

Governor Holcomb’s proposed budget ends state support for the Hoosier State train to Chicago. It was a surprise since just a few years ago the Governor participated in train day rally and rode the train to Lafayette where he gave a speech on the importance of passenger rail. He also praised rail in his more recent State of the State address. Tell Representative Hamilton and State Senator Ruckelhaus to urge the Governor and Legislature to restore funding for the train. After all, if we have money for Delta’s nonstop flight to Paris (which we subsidize), we certainly can support the train to Chicago. It’s a perfect alternative to the congested and accident prone I-65. For more information, join Hoosiers for Passenger Rail on Facebook. Going to Chicago? Try the service. Tickets at

Red Line Briefing Scheduled

IndyGo will hold a briefing on the Red Line and associated construction activities in February. Watch this column for details. It will be held at the Indianapolis Art Center (see page 3). The Red Line is our new bus rapid transit to downtown from Broad Ripple. It will replace the current #17 and #18 routes. Construction is already underway on Meridian south of 38th Street, on College Avenue, and on Capitol Avenue downtown. Cities throughout the world already have bus rapid transit lines which are higher frequency, upgraded bus routes which make fewer stops than traditional lines (and are much cheaper than light rail).

Clue: H equals K

Sudoku is a nine by nine grid. The solution (each puzzle has only one) will have all the numbers from one through nine in every row and every column. In addition, the grid is divided into nine three-by-three sections. Each of these three-by-three sections will also contain all the numbers from one through nine. Each Sudoku puzzle from Pappocom can be solved using logic alone. If you prefer guessing, you can – but there is a logical way to solve every puzzle. Lets try to place a 8 in the middle section of the bottom row of the easy puzzle containing 2-3-4-6-7. The 3 in the left section of the bottom row eliminates the space between the 3-6. The 8 in the right section of the bottom row eliminates the space on both sides of the 2. The only place left is between the 7-4. You have learned one technique used to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

BEACH BOTTLE BANG I know it’s February, but my wine thoughts are still in December. I spent New Year’s Eve and the week after in Florida. The weather was hot and sunny by day and cool and comfortable at night. We had a casual gathering of friends and family on New Year’s Eve that started with champagne at sunset (the always versatile, tasty and VERY affordable Barefoot Bubbly Brut) and included a pitch-in buffet of sandwiches, Italian meatballs, cheeses, crudite, dips, Fresh strawberries from the farmer’s market and home-made ginger snaps and chocolate chunk cookies for dessert. What wine to serve with that wide variety of food? Tried and true bottles all ended up empty at the end of the evening. Which is once again a good reminder that even on a special occasion you don’t have to go overboard when it comes to serving wine. The dry, grassy, Mercer Sauvignon Blanc worked for the vegetarians and white wine fans. The MacMurray Ranch Pinot Noir offered a more rustic, earthy, red fruit forward beverage and highly complemented the meats and cheeses. The Prophecy Cabernet Sauvignon’s smoky, spicy, full bodied, richness also made it a smart choice for the heartier dishes and a surprisingly good drink with the desserts. The best part of New Year’s Eve on the beach is the fireworks in the sky at midnight. Virtually every resort shoots off a spectacular professional show. The view from our deck overlooking the Gulf was filled with color, light and sparkle and made an appropriate reflection in the sky of what took place at our table earlier.

Vol. 16 No. 03

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter Treading Winter Dreaming of sunny days, warm weather, gardening, swimming, baseball and golf. Not yet! We are still in the throes of winter. Keep enjoying our heavy sweaters, winter coats, boots, furnaces, and fireplaces! I was reminded by the Mindfulness post on Facebook where it said, “If you choose not to find joy in the snow, you will have less joy in your life, but still the same amount of snow.” I’d like to tweak the post and say, “If you choose not to find joy in winter, you will have less joy in your life, but still the same amount of winter.” That quote gave me pause to think about my relationship to winter. I decided to adjust my attitude since I couldn’t adjust nature and the weather. So for the remainder of this season, that often feels too long, I am following some suggestions from social media that I thought would challenge me and help me pass the days. Here is a schedule I am going to record on my calendar. Each calendar day will be different, like: lunch with a friend, afternoon walk (no matter the weather), observe my backyard for a morning and record the visitors (No TV or phone), a movie, bake a cake for my neighbor who shoveled my walk, spa day at home, eat at new restaurant in the area, visit one store I have not every been to, choose a frozen dinner I have never tried. See, the list can be endless, so I set up a one-month calendar to encourage me through the wintertime. Because I already started my events, my first Saturday was Broad Ripple Winter Farmer’s Market, located at Liter House at 5301 Winthrop Avenue. The rooms where buzzing with conversation, questions, and connections. The selection from a rotation of nearly 40 vendors was just the pick-me-up I needed for a rainy, dreary Saturday morning with snow in the forecast. Honey, coffee, livestock products, winter vegetables, fresh breads, pastries, to many varieties of apples, cheeses, gluten-free foods and organic wonders, the market did not disappoint. Jim Baughman, vendor from Freedom, IN, offered a great variety of vibrant looking organic produce. “This is a wonderful community and a great place for the folks to gather. I get lots of questions about my produce and that often leads to interesting conversations and advice about gardening. The bonus at this market is that there is lots of parking! Most market aren’t that lucky.” Mandy Corry of Schacht Farm travels every weekend from Bloomington. She’s been working the Broad Ripple Farmer’s Market for twelve seasons. She calls her livestock retail “a labor of love”. I looked up and saw a line forming at her booth. Her customers love her fresh eggs and meat too. I moved on to David Boots of Wild’s Apple Farm who offered an amazing array of apples. He grows heritage apples and had many varieties I had not heard of, even one created by Purdue University. You get to pick the apples you want, put them in a small basket, and he weighs them. I got to share apple stories with him, and he said he could even help me in March learn to spray my young apple trees that I planted in my backyard. You just never know what you will learn, what you will buy, or who you will meet at the market. The visit to the market ended with me speaking to Barb Wilder, one of the market masters. She was able to tell me more about the winter market and the wonderful partnership with Eddie Sahm, owner of Liter House. The vendors sometimes rotate, like working first and third or second and fourth Saturdays. She advised to check out their website,, or their Instagram site weekly to know the vendors attending and any special events. They celebrate national food days like National Spaghetti Day, National Gluten-free Day or Gourmet Coffee Day. With music accompanying your shopping, they also add special events like collecting hats and glove for IPS. I also heard praise from the vendors for the hard working market masters and the quality Broad Ripple Farmer’s Market always offers—winter or summer. These vendors work the market for their livelihood, and the market organizers respect this and run a great event. All are working hard for you, the customer. We are fortunate to have a gem right in the heart of Broad Ripple all season long. So don’t despair about the weather. Make a visit to the Winter Farmer’s Market and get a seasonal boost. You can see your friends, have a great conversation, and afterwards, lunch at Liter House….all with free parking! Remember, if you choose not to find joy in winter, you will have less joy in your life, but still the same amount of winter. The market is joy!
