We're delighted to partner with the Carmel Clay Public Library to present 'Connecting Mass Transit to You.'

Get updated and new information about the proposed Red and Green Lines serving Carmel, Fishers and Noblesville. Speakers will address key issues and dispel common myths regarding transit. Sean Northup, Assistant Executive Director for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization will provide new information on the proposed Red and Green Lines.  Mike Hollibaugh, Director of Community Services for the City of Carmel will discuss Carmel's long term transportation strategies and the vision for transportation including transit, bikes and buses.  Jeff Kingsbury of Greenstreet Ltd. will address some of the myths about transit.

During the 2013 legislative session, your State representatives had an opportunity to pass a bill that would have allowed you to vote on mass transit funding through a County referendum.  While the State House passed the bill, the Senate sent it to a Summer Study Committee. For more information about the Summer Study Committee, please go to http://www.in.gov/legislative/interim/committee/cits.html For more information about the 2013 legislative session, please go to http://carmelgreen.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=243:transit&catid=39:community-events&Itemid=40

Chronology of the Trash and Recycling Ordinance

After months of debate and delays, the Carmel City Council passed the trash and recycling ordinance at the July 18, 2011 council meeting.

Thanks to all who actively engaged in the legislative process by contacting your councilors, participating in surveys, and raising your voice at council meetings. The City survey showed approximately 70% of respondents in favor of a city trash and recycling ordinance.  Over 400 residents (~95%) voted in favor of recycling on the CGI poll.   Over 42 residents spoke in support at various Council meetings.  The Carmel Clay School District, Carmel Chamber and various HOAs also supported the ordinance.

This page provides a brief chronology of the legislative process. Click here to learn about the trash & recycling program..
