Town of Mooresville Considering Annexation for Future Industrial Growth
(Click on picture to enlarge)

On Tuesday, November 6 th at 6:30 p.m. at the Mooresville Government Center, the Mooresville Town Council will hold a public hearing regarding a petition to annex 116 acres located near the intersection of State Road 67 and Merriman Road. The property is owned by Gene Pauley, and the annexation request is the result of months of consideration by Mr. Pauley, the town administration, the Mooresville Redevelopment Commission and the Morgan County EDC as to how the property can be developed for job creation as envisioned by Mr. Pauley.

Morgan County EDC commends the effort by Mr. Pauley, the town and the redevelopment commission as they continue to respond to the need to prepare industrial development sites in the community and throughout Morgan County. Real estate availability and readiness are critical to our ability to respond to growing or relocating companies, and for too long, Mooresville and Morgan County have been eliminated from capital investment opportunities because our real estate inventory has not met market expectations.

The Pauley annexation and its future development are great news for Mooresville and Morgan County. With Mr. Pauley’s stated interest and support, the community will soon have its most viable option to bring new primary jobs to the area. MCEDC urges its investors and partners to support the annexation during the public hearing on November 6 th .

As of this week, all paving on the main traffic lanes along the 21-mile stretch of Section 5 is finished. All entrance and exit ramps are open. All striping and reflective markers have been placed on the main traffic lanes. All access roads have been paved and striped. There will still be some lane restrictions for work such as slope grading, fence installation and the placement of stone, but "the highway is functional and open to traffic with limited restrictions," Manning wrote.
On weekends and during major events, such as home Indiana University football games, there will be at least two lanes open to traffic in each direction. The speed limit will continue to be reduced throughout the section as crews finish work outside the main travel lanes, such as clearing drainage pipes and installing signs. This work may require some lane restrictions during the week.

Bring Your Own Box Sleep Out Event

A message from WellSpring...

Missions, shelters, soup kitchens, and food pantries participate in National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week annually. As in the past three, WellSpring, will once again be doing its part to raise awareness about these crucial issues while raising funds to provide pathways to prosperity for the homeless families we serve. From Sunday, November 11- Saturday, November 17 th , WellSpring will be holding an array of events to engage the Morgan County community. Every day during that week a different restaurant(s) around the county will host a Dine to Donate with a percentage of sales being applied to the $37.00 per hour it takes to provide shelter, food, clothing, laundry facilities, a Homework Club, success coaching, and an array of classes designed to assist families become self-sufficient. WellSpring staff and volunteers will be collecting items from shoppers at Rural King located at 180 S. Ohio Street in Martinsville throughout the week.

On Friday night Nov. 16 starting at 7:00 through Saturday at 7 AM throughout Morgan County and beyond, WellSpring board members, staff, community leaders, and others concerned about those experiencing hunger and homelessness will participate in BYOB- Bring Your Own Box. Youth groups, service clubs, teachers (MSD Martinsville alone currently has more than 400 homeless students), and even senior citizens will grab a box and sleeping bag and “Sleep Out” to help evict homelessness from our community.

Now, through October 31, we are recruiting those who will join us and be willing to experience one night of being uncomfortable so others can have access to the resources they need to stabilize their lives and begin working toward success.

Our sleepers can choose to form their own group with family, friends, co-workers, and fellow parishioners at a location of their choosing (preferably a highly visible area with access to adequate lighting and restroom facilities), or they can join groups already being formed. From 7 PM-10PM that night, a speaker will drop by your location and educate your group on hunger and homelessness, and answer any questions. Saturday morning, we will be back around with fresh donuts, coffee, and of course our sincere gratitude. 

While your 12 hours of “Sleeping Out” will raise awareness and WCBK, KORN, the Reporter Times and others will cover the event, but that is only half of our initiative. We encourage all sleepers to raise at least 3 hours of operational support ($111.00). We will supply you with sponsorship sheets, or your supporters can make their donation through our website via Paypal. All those raising at least that amount will receive a purple (the color for homelessness) ribbon lapel pin to allow you to continue to raise awareness throughout the year.

Might we include you in our group of sleepers?
