JUST NORTH OF INDY….
One of the greatest benefits of living in Hamilton County is our proximity to Indianapolis. We share a border (96th St.) and we are grateful for all that great city has to offer. You are within an hour of world class sports facilities and championship teams, great dining, fascinating museums, and the nation’s newest international airport. They’re even playing a little championship football game there in early 2012. Indy has lots to offer, but we invite you to look north to Hamilton County’s eight great towns and our exceptional quality of life. Though we’ve grown up suburban, we’re way more than your average suburb. Each of our cities and towns has something special to offer, each is unique in its own way. Come on in. Explore and enjoy.

YOU MAY HAVE HEARD: Carmel unveiled its new arts and entertainment complex this year. The Center for the Performing Arts features one of the finest concert halls in the nation, the Palladium, and two other performing venues, the Tarkington and Studio Theater..
They are the latest in a series of innovations that is making Carmel a showcase for suburban living. The city’s downtown continues to evolve as new buildings and public spaces are completed. Carmel City Center, with the Center for the Performing Arts as its anchor, is a public-private partnership development that offers mixed use options in a walkable environment. It combines luxury residential, office suites, unique specialty retail, restaurants and entertainment venues in one compact package. Just up the street, the Indiana Design Center continues to grow in its variety of offerings. A onestop shop for all aspects of home and office
design, the Design Center has retail showrooms, designer services — even a design research library. It’s within the Arts & Design District, a quaint array of local shops in the heart of Old Town Carmel. Spend the day exploring the variety of galleries, showrooms, antique shops and specialty retailers. Use the guide to the Arts and Design District on pages 8 and 9 to find your way around. Even getting to Carmel is a pleasure, as the city recently opened the renovated Keystone Parkway, one of two main north-south arteries. The new Keystone features unique teardrops h a p e d roundabout intersections that keep traffic moving while adding to thebeauty of this growing community. Just north of downtown and across US 31 is Clay Terrace, Indiana’s first outdoor lifestyle center and home to more than 70 local boutiques and national retailers.

acoustics are perfect and the experience unique. It’s on the corner of City Center Drive and Third Avenue SW and tours are available.

The Tarkington, opening in August, is a 500-seat traditional proscenium theater.

QUALITY OF LIFE may be hard to define, but
you know it when you see it. Plenty of people are seeing it in Fishers these days. Money Magazine ranks it in the top ten of the best places to live in America and BusinessWeek has called Fishers America’s best affordable suburb. Clearly there’s something special going on here. So, what makes Fishers so great? Well, city leaders are quick to credit the town’s residents, generally young and ambitious, for creating the kind of community that attracts other people, which it does at a record rate. Consider this: Fishers has grown about 70% in the past nine years, 770%
In 1980, there were about 2000 people living here, mostly clustered around the train station, which remains the center of town. If you happen to be driving on Lantern Road south of 116th St and you see Fishers Elementary School, take note because that was Fishers High School just a generation ago. Today its one of the districts smallest schools as Fishers boasts two much larger high schools in addition to 16 other schools serving 18,000 students out of a total population of some 70,000 residents. The town’s growth is remarkable, which may lead you to ask why it is still a town, considering it has more people than many Indiana cities. That is an issue under discussion in Fishers these days as its residents discuss the pros and cons of becoming a city. Another occasional topic of discussion is downtown Fishers, mostly because there is no real defined downtown. Whereas many cities and towns have an original town square or crossroads, Fishers originated as a train stop back when trains defined the travel routes. The town now has the opportunity to create a town center and we’ll be hearing more about that in the years to come.
You will find a burgeoning cultural life growing with the population in Fishers. The town has a chamber orchestra, an arts council, a music society, a summer concert series, a phenomenally popular Freedom Festival held the last weekend of June and a Renaissance Faire in September that gets bigger and better every year.
Conner Prairie Interactive History Park was one of five museums honored in a White House ceremony late last year. First Lady Michelle Obama presented a National Medal for Museum and Library Service to CEO Ellen Rosenthal. The award recognizes commitment to public service through innovative programs and community partnerships. Conner Prairie was created by Eli Lilly in 1934 and is Indianaâ€™s only Smithsonian Affiliate. Current exhibits include 1863 Civil War Journey: Raid on Indiana and 1859 Balloon Voyage that takes guests 350 feet above the prairie in a tethered helium balloon.
ADVENTURE IS CALLING The fun never stops at Conner Prairie, an interactive park that allows you to become a part of history. Within our five unique outdoor themed areas, like our exciting new 1863 Civil War Journey: Raid on Indiana, you and your family can touch, taste and discover what it was like to live and play in Indianaâ€™s past. Plus we have lots of daily and weekly activities sure to enchant and engage children and adults alike. What are you waiting for? Plan your adventure today at connerprairie.org.

DOWNTOWN NOBLESVILLE has a special quality
that’s hard to describe. The Courthouse Square is a rare example of a vibrant city center in small town Indiana. Through the coordinated efforts of many groups, this city has managed to retain the charm and character that so many have lost. Noblesville is fortunate to have an iconic building like the Historic Courthouse as an anchor. Originally built in 1879, the renovated courthouse continues to house county offices. Today the square surrounding it has a reputation as a unique experience, with small, locally-owned shops and restaurants in a walkable environment that reminds visitors of a slower, more leisurely time. In the Summer, you will find some kind of entertainment or event on the square almost every week-end, and people out enjoying the atmosphere virtually every night. Car enthusiasts hold informal cruise-ins, where the young and old
Although anchored at the courthouse square, Noblesville is growing in all directions. At Exit 10 where Greenfield Avenue crosses Interstate 69, Hamilton Town Center is the city’s newest shopping center, an outdoor lifestyle center offering the latest in national retail shops. Exit 10 is also the location of Noblesville’s innovative Corporate Campus,offering office, industrial, retail and residential space all in one area. On the other end of town on the way to Westfield, new stores are going in at the corner of SR 32 and Hazel Dell Road, and a few miles south on Hazel Dell you will find the Noble Crossing Shopping Center. In addition, there’s plenty of shopping along SR 37, about a mile east of downtown and heading south toward Fishers.

LIKE OTHER HAMILTON COUNTY COMMUNITIES,
Westfield has attracted thousands of families over the past decade. Community leaders see an opportunity there to combine the city’s appeal to families with Indiana’s inclination toward amateur sports and make Westfield a family sports Mecca. The idea is embodied in the Grand Park Sports Complex, a planned 350 acre facility west of US 31 and north of SR 32. The plan is for dozens of fields and diamonds designed especially for competitive sports like baseball, soccer, rugby, lacrosse and field hockey. The facility would be surrounded by hotels, restaurants and shopping, with residential areas nearby. It would serve visitors and residents alike. Nearby, another ambitious project is taking shape near Westfield’s original downtown. At the convergence of the Monon and Midland Trace Trails, city leaders are planning a new downtown called the Grand Junction. The goal is a mix of older
commercial structures with historic charm and character and newer structures that meet the contemporary marketplace needs of retailers and restaurants, all in a walkable environment. Plans include the amenities people love: beautiful buildings for business and residences, public spaces, parks, trails, a civic center, all built in concert with the numerous creeks that flow through town. Although some infrastructure is in, most of the work is yet to be done. Meantime, local shops await you along SR 32 east of US 31. Be sure to stop in to enjoy the charm of Westfield’s downtown, where you will find a delightful variety of dining options as well as shopping. In addition to downtown, most of Westfield’s shopping is just north of Carmel in the Greyhound Pass area near 146th St. along U.S.31.You will also find shopping centers east of downtown on SR 32 and west on 161st St.

When Roger Crim opened his antique store along SR32 in Westfield, he liked the space and the location, but he wasn’t so happy with its appearance. Let’s face it, it was a faded white pole barn. So he painted it yellow, but even though it’s a large building, few people even noticed it on the side of the highway. He needed something more…creative.
a town in the early 1900’s. Now, everybody sees it as they’re heading into town from the east. Designed to emulate a piece of folk art, the mural includes the kinds of buildings you would find along a typical Main St, like a General Store and a Barber Shop, plus, of course, an Antique Store, which surrounds the actual door. And, there’s a personal connection for Roger: all the way down on the right is Mary’s Soda Shoppe. Mary is Roger’s wife’s mother, and Mary met her husband at a soda shop where he worked as the soda jerk.
So he and one of his employees, Rose Houston, came up with a plan to paint a mural on it. They researched buildings and colors they liked and in six months came up with a scheme that resembles

The Sports Campus at Westfield ..................................... There’s a pretty good chance that you are here participating in youth sports. And if you aren’t now, you may well be in the future. We’re all about families here in Hamilton County, and because we have so many kids, well, we have a lot of kids’ sports. That creates demand for sports facilities.
Learn more at www.grandpark.org
Currently, we host 6080 tournaments each year in a variety of sports. The City of Westfield has big plans to build a facility just for youth sports. Called Grand Park, this sports campus would feature dozens of ball diamonds, fields for soccer, football, rugby and lacrosse, an indoor facility, and all the supporting retail and lodging, even residential development. They expect a quarter million people to use it each year, 75,000 of them from outside the county. Indiana has long been known for its youth sports. This idea builds on that tradition, providing a purpose-built sports facility that celebrates and encourages kids’ athletic development.

HAMILTON HAMILTON HEIGHTS
THE ADVENTUROUS AND CURIOUS
will take the time to explore the northern half of Hamilton County and will be justly rewarded. It’s a region called Hamilton Heights, named for the consolidated school district encompassing Cicero, Arcadia and Atlanta. The area retains a touch of Hamilton County’s rural past. These three towns grew up in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries along the Nickel Plate Railroad north of Noblesville.

north of Noblesville you reach Cicero, a lake community that hugs the northern shore of Morse Reservoir. Here is small town living at its best. Though only a few minutes from larger cities, Cicero offers a small town atmosphere and lakeside living that people like to come to home to. There is but one traffic light in town at the corner of Jackson and Peru (S.R.19) but beautiful19th century buildings in the three block downtown area house all the essentials.

ARCADIA & ARCADIA & ATLANTA
through Arcadia to Atlanta in historic railroad cars. Check www.itm.org for times and availability.
ATLANTA ARCADIA Up the road a little farther and across the northern tip of Morse Lake is Arcadia. Turn left off the highway to find the downtown area, surrounded by homes, many of which date to the 1800s, when Arcadia was a much busier place. Like many towns in Central Indiana, Arcadia benefited from the discovery of natural gas deposits in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Legend has it that you could literally drill a hole in the ground and light a flame from the gas that erupted. Unfortunately the gas deposits in Hamilton County were small and when they were depleted the factories foundered. Still, the railroads helped keep these small towns going until they peaked as well. Today, Arcadia’s solid brick structures downtown house the burgeoning Arcadia Arts Initiative, home to more than 20 artists. The Hedgehog Music Showcase, located in a downtown storefront, features down home music in a smoke-free and alcohol-free environment. A professional dance school, an art gallery and Alice’s Restaurant are new additions. The Indiana Transportation Museum offers excursions north from Noblesville
Another five miles up Highway 19, at Hamilton County’s northern border, is Atlanta, once the largest town in the county. The railroad tracks run right through the center of town and skirt the evidence of Atlanta’s one-time prosperity. You will find some beautiful examples of old architecture here, both residential and commercial. Atlanta is best known these days for its annual Earth Festival, when the town’s population swells from fewer than 1000 to more than 80,000. The entire town becomes a large shopping and eating venue every fourth full week-end of September. Residents rent out their front yards as parking lots and every downtown street is lined with vendors of arts, crafts, antiques and collectibles. It’s all free and its one of the most entertaining festivals in Indana. To make the adventure even more enjoyable, check out the periodic train excursion out of Noblesville, run by the Indiana Transportation Museum. What a great way to spend an autumn weekend!
WHILE THE SOUTHERN part
of Hamilton County is solid suburbia, the northern part is still small town, and nowhere is the spirit of small town America captured better than in Sheridan. At 2600 or so, Sheridan’s population is half of Carmel’s and Fishers’ rate of growth in a typical year. It may be small in size but Sheridan is large in stature. It has a very proud heritage, furthered by an active Historical Society, which recently restored the original home of its founding father George Boxley. Boxley’s Cabin, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, sits on Pioneer Hill in Veteran’s Park on the north side of town and is open to the public. George was a fiery abolitionist from Virginia who arrived here ahead of the bounty hunters and spent his life denouncing the evils of slavery when that was a controversial stance. Sheridan’s small but mighty reputation extends to the football field as well, the high school having won a state record nine state championships under Hall of Fame coach Bud Wright. Sheridan grew as a result of its position along the Monon Railroad, which ran from Indianapolis to Chicago. Like other small towns in Hamilton County and throughout Indiana, it thrived during the gas boom in the early 20th century. Many of
its historic downtown buildings remain along Main St. and now house newer businesses, though it retains a distinctly small town atmosphere. You will still find a local hardware store downtown, a grocery store, a bank and several taverns with friendly people awaiting your visit. Suburbia has arrived, and Sheridan has a few housing developments and shopping centers. But the core town, a little over a mile square, is a lovely reminder of small town living at its best. And, the Monon is on its way back. The Monon Trail, a recreational biking and hiking trail on the railbed of the old railroad, originates in downtown Indianapolis and is being developed through Carmel and Westfield. Sheridan is already working on its section, which will eventually connect to the trail’s that are already in use.

affordable suburb. We even offer a choice of two lakes (Geist in Fishers and Morse in Noblesville).
LIVING IN HAMILTON COUNTY…
Consider this: last year, in the entire nine-county Indianapolis metro area, more than 40% of the building permits were issued in Hamilton County. Clearly, people are choosing this area to build new homes. Even in a down economy, Hamilton County continues to attract people seeking a great place to live. Among the reasons: our terrific schools, wellmaintained roads and trails, and the variety of housing options. No matter your lifestage or age, you can find a place to live here at a price you can afford. Of the 650 active subdivisions in the nine county metro, 189 are here in Hamilton County. The subdivision remains the housing lifestyle of choice for most families, and you will find a wider choice here than anywhere else around. In fact, BusinessWeek last year called Fishers America’s best
But the choices go beyond single family homes. Apartment living is becoming more popular and Hamilton County has seen more than 2700 new units go up in the past three years, with nearly 1500 more to come. Condos in downtown Carmel seem more urban than suburban, as mixed use developments are built along the Monon Trail. The Village of West Clay is one of the nation’s most ambitious examples of New Urbanism, with a variety of housing options in a walkable environment. Last year, US News and World Report ranked Noblesville one of the best places in the nation to retire, and developers are preparing retirement communities throughout the county as the baby boomers reach their golden years. If your tastes lean a little more toward an older home, every city and town in the county offers choices in all conditions, from fixer uppers to classic elegance, city living to small town charm. Hamilton County is a great place to visit, but it’s an even greater place to live.

GETTING GETTING AROUND
as we are from Marion County (Indianapolis) to the south, we are connected by our street numbers. You may have noticed that the southernmost border of Hamilton County is 96th St. That system originates in downtown Indy and continues up to the northern border of Hamilton County, which is 296th St., so every address is north (as a result we don’t bother with north-south designations). Every block is about one tenth of a mile, so ten blocks constitutes one mile. Although it’s not very creative, it is a very useful system, and can help you find addresses easily. Northsouth addresses are always 5 digits, the first three telling you which block the address is in. For example, 15325 is between 151st and 156th. Even numbers are on the west side of the street and odd are on the east. As it turns out, major eastwest thoroughfares happen to fall on the sixes (96th, 116th and 146th), a pattern that also extends from Marion County. Although not quite as numerical, there is a system for east-west addresses too. Once again, the central starting point emerges from downtown Indy. Meridian Street is the dividing line and addresses extend east and west. Meridian actually ends at the Carmel-Westfield line, where it becomes US Rt. 31 and that’s the center line up to Tipton County. If an address is “east”, it’s east of US 31. Once you get into a subdivision it becomes a little more creative and a lot more difficult. Most residential streets in developments curve around the compass points and don’t lend themselves well to a grid numbering system. The best
bet is to find the street and try to find a pattern. Most subdivision streets are relatively short so if you get lost you can turn around to find your way out. A compass is a great accessory because subdivision streets are notorious for curving in such a way that you immediately lose your sense of direction and before you know it you’re heading the opposite way of what your instincts are telling you. Even gps’s get confused from time to time. The best strategy is to get directions beforehand and follow them instead of trying to make sense of the numbering system.

The Indiana Golf Association selects Hamilton County courses to host a variety of its tournaments-nine are scheduled in 2011. It is not for convenience; there are just so many great and gracious golf courses they say.
PLAY GOLF, WATCH GOLF, BE PART OF GOLF!
Hamilton county golfers love their sport. We play golf. We watch golf. Often we are part of golf as volunteers to several national golf events that make our county their tournament homes for a week each summer. Like you, they enjoy their golf experience in Hamilton County. Play golf this summer and come back in early September 2012 as a volunteer for the BMW championship at Crooked Stick GC. For more information, visit the volunteer web site: 2012BMWVolunteers.com. Hamilton County visitors easily can stay and play here as evidenced by well over a dozen public courses available with accessible tee times. You can’t drive through our county without spotting a public access golf course nearby. In addition there are six private courses, anchored by Crooked Stick GC, host of many national events such as the next year’s BMW championship, part the FedEx Cup playoffs.
You’ll find our courses highly rated in such publications as Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, Great Lakes Golf, and Golfweek. Because of this, it is no surprise that our area has become a destination point for golfers everywhere. The Hamilton County Visitors Bureau has a name for it. It is called Stay and Play…and so many folks do. Special rates for lodging and golf are provided to visitors and your tee times are automatically set up by area hotels. Add the distinctive collegial accent of our pro shops and you know you have made the right tee time. Courses like Noblesville’s Purgatory GC, ranked among America’s top courses for women; Cicero’s Bear Slide GC; and Carmel’s Plum Creek GC and Prairie View GC are often packaged in a foursome for a great golfing weekend. Our public and two municipal courses offer challenging, well conditioned golf at competitive

SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY THE SCENERY. Hamilton County is the healthiest county in Indiana and we’re trying to make it easier for people to get out and exercise. If you’re here during the Spring, Summer or Fall months, be sure to bring your bike or hiking shoes. We have some fine trails here in Hamilton County and plans for even more. Many subdivisions have their own trails; the challenge is connecting them all, which will happen eventually. Meantime, improved thoroughfares (like 146th St. and Hazel Dell Parkway) have trails built alongside. Fishers offers more than 60 miles of multi-use trails adjacent to streets. The county’s major trails are indicated on the maps on pages 26-29. The crown jewel of our trail system is the Monon Trail, which extends th from 10 Street in downtown Indianapolis to 161st St. in Westfield. The Monon is built along an old rail line that extends north and south through Hamilton County. It’s an important part of Carmel’s plans for downtown and winds through the heart of the city. Carmel has built beautiful bridges and tunnels to make the trail safer at intersections. A bridge over 146th St. is planned for the near future. Sheridan is developing its section and working south as Westfield works north. Eventually they will meet.
Westfield is planning its new downtown around the future junction of the Monon and the Midland Trace trails, which will intersect at the Grand Junction. Only a few thousand feet of the Midland Trace are developed so far, but a bridge is in and it’s looking great as it heads east toward Noblesville. On any week-end day you will find thousands of healthy Hoosiers enjoying the foliage canopy, the fresh air and the sense of community along a trail. There are many parking areas along the Monon, but you can get on at virtually any crossing point and go as far north or south as you would like. There are no street lights on the Monon and the trails close at dusk, so be sure to plan your venture so that you return before dark.
THIS GROWING COMMUNITY
is attracting the best services in virtually every area. From caterers to photographers to airports to limos, we’ve got it here and what’s not available in Hamilton County is almost certainly available nearby in Indianapolis. Church services are offered for dozens of denominations throughout the county. Refer to the yellow pages or online for a comprehensive list. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .................................................................. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 28 STAR STUDIO

are fun to drive, and faster and safer than traffic signals because they eliminate one of the most dangerous driving maneuvers, the left hand turn across oncoming traffic.
A GREAT WAY TO KEEP TRAFFIC MOVING If you haven’t encountered a Hamilton County roundabout yet, you will soon as our communities continue to build them at record rates. In fact, we’ve been building so many that the National Roundabout Conference (yes, there is such a thing) is being held in Carmel this year. The attendees can conduct field research nearby as Carmel now has more than sixty roundabouts with at least a dozen more planned. It is the roundabout capitol of the US and other Hamilton County communities are quickly following suit. The trend was noted by both Newsweek and Financial Times magazines in the past year. Of course, the US has only about 2000 roundabouts nationwide, compared to France with 10 times as many. About 250 are being built each year nationwide, but the current trend started here. You can see and drive the latest design along Keystone Parkway, where six Carmel intersections feature double teardrop shaped roundabouts. Not only are they pleasing to look at, they
Once you get used to driving in them you wonder why roundabouts took so long to catch on. They’re cheaper to build than traditional intersections and, best of all, they keep traffic moving, which saves gas and time. Of course, they do take a little getting used to. The most important thing to keep in mind is that traffic in the roundabout always has the right of way. So as you approach, look left (the only direction traffic is coming from) and yield to those who are already in. If no one is coming, you just cruise right in. Once you are in, you have the right of way, so keep moving. The system breaks down if cars stop in the roundabout. Roundabouts are especially useful for visitors who may be unfamiliar with the area. If they accidentally pass their destination, an upcoming roundabout gives them the opportunity to execute the perfect U-turn: no stopping, no shift into reverse, no sweat; just a smooth left hand curve and they are back on the road going the opposite direction.
Like a taste of Europe, only closer. You don’t need to travel abroad to enjoy alfresco dining in a quaint, European-style setting. Noblesville, Indiana’s historic Courthouse Square offers all the trappings of your favorite Old World destination, at a fraction of the distance. It’s also just one of the many attractions that makes Hamilton County a fun and affordable getaway.
