RYAN CANNON Town Manager

After years of requests and project preparation, construction has started on the first phase of the Dan Jones Rd widening. This is the first phase of what will be a multiyear project. The first segment is between the Dan Jones bridge over CSX to CR 100 S. This first phase of the project will cost almost $6 million dollars to widen to 4 lanes. This segment is the most heavily traveled segment, with over 20,000 vehicles per day. Dan Jones will remain open during construction. This is being done to allow homeowners access to their homes. Please utilize alternative routes if you don't live on Dan Jones. If you have no other alternative, please slow down to keep the workers safe and expect delays. As part of our efforts to be transparent and share information, we have created an excellent source of information on our website, where you can find all kinds of information about phase 1 construction and future phases of the Dan Jones Widening Project. That website is AvonIndiana.gov/DanJones . The Town has also subscribed to a notification system where you can get updates on traffic information and things going on in the Town that may affect you.

The Parks Maintenance Department has a new time-saving implement. In the past, crew members have spent many hours hand trimming along tree lines and trails. The new apparatus is essentially a vertical 45-inch wide mower mounted on the front of a tractor capable of cutting tree limbs up to 2-inch diameter and 15-feet high. The trimming used to require approximately two weeks during the span of a year but is now accomplished in about three days. The mechanical method also results in a distinct smooth looking cut. Additionally, the crew has continued to complete summertime tasks such as grass mowing, string trimming, hedge and plant shaping and weed control. The lack of rainfall has also resulted in plant and tree watering one to two times a week. AVON PARKS MAINTENANCE CHUCK MCGEE MAINTENANCE SUPERINTENDANT

Economic Development Department -John Taylor, Economic Development Director Van Trust

Van Trust, the owners and builders at Avon Landing, will begin their next building this summer. The 150,000 square foot building will be constructed for an unnamed tenant and will sit in front of their recently completed 300,000 square foot distribution/manufacturing center. Additionally, just down the street on Ronald Reagan is the Rise Development that has truly begun to come out of the ground. Their first building is currently under construction with a number of other buildings to follow.

Stay Tuned for more updates in the coming months! The industrial market continues to be strong and Avon sits in a very strong position to take advantage of this growth.

Distribution Realty Group Distribution Realty Group owns the two buildings across Ronald Reagan from Rise Development and they have plans for another 250,000 square foot building to be erected later this year. Add all of this to the 1,009,000 square foot building that Chicago Industrial is building next door to its 880,000 square foot building on 100S and it is easy to see that our community has been found by the industrial groups throughout the USA. With all these buildings will come jobs and taxes to be collected by the community. We are also blessed to have this sort of development occurring as this enables out community to extend water and sewer lines without the need to raise taxes.

The opening of the second Chick-Fil-A in the Town of Avon will increase the traffic at Beechwood Center Road and Beechwood Drive. Our Public Works team was proactive and replaced the two stop signs at the intersections of those two roads and placed a singular stop sign to help with traffic flow configurations.
