  1. Ballard Administration. Too funny. This is the least fiscally responsive administration I have ever seen. One thing this article failed to mention, is that the Hoosier State line delivers rail cars to the Amtrak Beech Grove maintenance facility for refurbishment. That's an economic development issue. And the jobs there are high-paying. That alone is worth the City's investment.

  2. The town of Speedway needs to renew itself, otherwise it will pass as an old factory town. It was a much better place not 20 years go, but has become a town that has seen better days. Better than investing 100 million dollars in loans to the IMS, why not 100 million dollars in improvements to Speedway and police to protect citizens from crime. As with any city, Indianapolis downward spiral from the city center to I465 and beyond continues with migration of crime from the inner city to the outlying areas to surrounding counties. Unfortunately, instead of the acceptable culture and morals of surrounding counties taking precedence of people migrating from the inner city, it appears to be the negative element is moving into the surrounding counties causing crime to migrate with them. Would suggest that surrounding counties hold the line and do not allow pushing culture that is negative to the suburbs, but change those who have that culture to a more positive focus rather than inner city acceptable behavior. As with Broad Ripple, crime is migrating outward and must be stopped and those who are criminal locked up. I suppose that is why the new Jail/Prison is being placed across from the Indianapolis Zoo, what a bad place to put it, right next to an outdoor concert venue and across from a major community attraction. There will need to be plenty of security there. The only way to stop the violence from occurring in and around the city is to crack down on underage loitering, drinking, and generally between the hours of 11 and 7 in the morning, focus on crime areas and bust the criminals before they can commit any crimes.

  3. $15 MILLION for a traffic circle with no traffic signals seems awfully expensive even after considering demolition costs.
