Letters: Quality of life matters

Noblesville officials are smart to focus on this kind of development [“Noblesville leaders expand scope of planned Innovation Mile,” Nov. 4]. And they have the built-in advantage of all that empty land to work with.

However, I wonder how successful they’ll be in attracting companies that are concerned about a lack of qualified workers in the local population and the hesitance of young professionals to move to a state that flounders in a number of important quality-of-life metrics.

It’s fine to aspire to keep up with the rest of the country, but it will take more than a few politicians handing out tax incentives to succeed. The sooner Indiana’s political leaders realize that, the better.
