DPW Is Ready for 1st Measurable Indy Snowfall

The Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) is monitoring weather conditions and deployed 80 plow trucks at 11 a.m. to begin treating roadways and monitoring road conditions ahead of forecasted snowfall this afternoon.

At 11 p.m., a new crew of 80 drivers will continue treating roads throughout the night and into the morning commute, addressing bridge decks, overpasses, and major thoroughfares.

The Indy Snow Force Viewer will activate when drivers are on the roadways to show real-time movements of DPW trucks. The Indy Snow Force Viewer displays which streets have been treated with salt or plowed of snow.

DPW would like to remind residents to drive with care when on the roads with plow and salt trucks. Keep three car lengths between your vehicle and the snowplow to allow a safe stopping distance for plow drivers and yourself.

For a list of winter driving tips and ways, residents can stay safe while driving in winter weather, visit indy.gov. Updates are also available on Twitter @IndySnowForce.

White River State Park Announces New Recycling Initiative

White River State Park (WRSP) is rolling out its newest intern-led initiative, the White River State Park Recycling Initiative. The initiative brings about the installation of several recycling receptacles that are projected to divert approximately 30 tons of waste from ending up in Indiana landfills each year.

Unique to this initiative is that it was developed by a WRSP student intern. Each year, WRSP hires interns from universities throughout the state to work on various projects throughout the park. In addition to their assigned duties, these interns are encouraged to identify opportunities to develop their interests and skills while providing a mutually beneficial return for the park. This past summer one intern decided to take a look at waste management in the park and develop recommendations aimed at saving costs and providing an added level of social responsibility. That student intern is Meghan Ziegler, a junior at IUPUI. Meghan’s passion for the environment and fondness of the park led her to complete a waste audit to determine the composition ratio of recyclable materials to organic waste in each area of the park.

“I am proud to say that White River State Park is aiding in the effort to make Indianapolis a more sustainable city, said WRSP Summer Intern and Project Lead, Meghan Ziegler. “As park visitors enjoy our over 250 acres of green space, waterways, and trails, they now have the opportunity to recycle, helping to preserve our beautiful park. It is gratifying to have had the support of our staff in believing in and launching this initiative. It is equally exciting to see it come to fruition.”

Meghan worked closely with WRSP Property Manager, Lisa Milton. Milton holds a Master of Science degree in Environmental Science from Indiana University. Together, they used the results of Meghan’s waste audit to determine the most effective placement of recycling receptacles. They also surveyed WRSP Grounds Maintenance staff on the relative abundance of waste in these areas.

“As a leader in environmental stewardship in our community, we see recycling as a critical mechanism by which we can all contribute to a sustainable future for Indiana,” said Lisa Milton, Property Manager for White River State Park. “Recycling is a common-sense practice that has many benefits to our community beyond simple waste reduction. It preserves habitat, conserves energy and natural resources, and creates jobs and benefits the economy. This is one of the many efforts by WRSP to promote a safe and healthy environment in Indianapolis.”

As a result of their work, the recycling initiative received the green light to install 10 co-mingled use recycling receptacles throughout the park. These initial ten receptacles will be placed in locations that will optimize the collection of recyclable materials. It is the hope of the staff to add additional receptacles throughout the park in the future. A map of the receptacles can be found by visiting https://www.whiteriverstatepark.org/recycling/.

2019 Indianapolis Trick-or-treat Hours

The City of Indianapolis announced trick-or-treat hours for Halloween and offered up tips to help trick-or-treaters stay safe.

Trick-or-treat hours in Indianapolis will be from 6 – 8 p.m. on Thursday, October 31. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) will have extra patrols and enforcement in neighborhoods during these times to protect the safety of residents during Halloween festivities.

If you are joining in this year’s trick-or-treating fun, please consider the following safety tips:

  • Wear light-colored clothing short enough to prevent tripping and add reflective tape
  • Wear fire-resistant costumes
  • Make sure children can see well through face masks
  • Don’t wear masks or disguises into businesses
  • Adults should accompany young children and children with special needs
  • Go out in daylight hours if possible or carry a flashlight if you’ll be out after dark
  • Motorists are reminded to slow down and be aware of their surroundings
  • Only give and accept wrapped or packaged treats
  • Examine all treats before allowing children to eat them. If you find a suspicious item, contact police as soon as possible at 327-3811; if an injury is involved, dial 911
  • Avoid props such as toy guns, which can look real
  • Consider block parties instead of trick-or-treating
  • Don’t fire guns – not only is this illegal but what goes up, must come down
  • Check the weather and have appropriate dress under costumes in the event of cold temperatures

Not-So Silent Halloween October 25, 2019

At Not-So Silent Halloween, you get scary movies, creepy music, spooky lighting, a costume contest with cash prizes, and adult beverages in the Grand Hall at Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Avenue in Indianapolis, a restored and repurposed nineteenth-century church.

Doors and cash bar open at 6:30 p.m. Classic scary organ music begins at 7 p.m. along with spooky special lighting effects that make the Grand Hall an eerie pre-Halloween destination. Frightful Sammy Terry emcees the evening, with stage presentations, lots of audience participation activities, and photo ops.

The 1955 cult classic Bride of the Monster, starring Bela Lugosi and directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr., sets the tone for an evening of campy horror fun. Along with the main feature, concert organist Mark Herman conjures atmospheric musical selections and an entertaining score for an early silent short.

To compete for a cash prize in our Halloween costume contest, dress as your favorite classic movie monster. We’ll award prizes to the best classic monster, the best original monster and the best creepy couple (think Frankenstein’s monster and his bride, Morticia and Gomez, King Kong and Ann Darrow, Janet and Brad). Work on presentation because you’ll parade yourself across the stage in style for crowd reaction and judges’ view.

The event ends around 10:00 p.m.—plenty of time to head to a club, bar or another party in your Halloween disguise.

Grand Hall at Indiana Landmarks Center
1201 Central Avenue
Indianapolis, IN 46202
