Finish the Floodwall and the Indianapolis North Flood Damage Reduction Project

To be delivered to Greg Ballard, Mayor of Indianapolis, Rep. Susan Brooks (IN-5), Sen. Joe Donnelly (IN-1), and Sen. Todd Young (IN-2)

Petition Statement

The undersigned strongly urge the City of Indianapolis to work with United States Army Corps of Engineers to complete the Indianapolis North Flood Damage Reduction Project in an expeditious manner.
There are currently 1,057 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Warfleigh, Broad Ripple, North Butler-Tarkington and surrounding areas lie in a 100-year flood plain, placing lives and homes at risk. The Indianapolis North Flood Damage Reduction Project seeks to remove these areas from the flood plain. Most recently, the City of Indianapolis announced its plan to complete the project. However, opposition to the project remains strong with some seeking to either temporarily or permanently cease project progress. Meanwhile, while the lives and homes of residents remain at risk, Congress acted in 2012 to impose additional hardship upon affected residents by passing the Biggert-Waters Act which sharply increases premiums and rates charged to homeowners for flood insurance.
