Hey, Hold It Down Over There!
In the evolving saga of the epic neighborhood riff, Carmel City Court Judge Brian Poindexter ruled the Carmel noise ordinance unconstitutional as applied to a lawsuit filed against two Lucas estate workers. (NOTE: The lawsuit filed against the estate regarding violating the zoning ordinance was not affected by this recent Carmel prosecutor ruling.) If you’ve not been keeping up, neighbors to the 116
estate complained in 2017 of excessive noise and traffic from a newly expanded event center on the Lucas (formerly Hilbert) estate. Since then, the city requested a zoning variance be filed to allow parties (many of which are charitable in nature), which Lucas begrudgingly did only to be denied. That resulted in the fore-mentioned lawsuit as well as
an injunction request with Hamilton Superior Court to prevent more events at the estate. Both sides have filed counterclaims and await a ruling. Meanwhile, party like it’s 1999 at the Irsay Pavilion.
