To the editor:
As a resident of White River Township who travels through the Smith Valley Road/State Road 135 interchange on a regular basis, I can understand the frustration of those living in Carefree South. They feel they have no control. There is no one in government to represent their interests, as Greenwood makes decisions that are in the city’s best interest but also are potentially detrimental to Carefree South residents.
I encourage the residents to contact the county commissioners to ask them what they are going to do about the looming problem. They are the first line of government for those living in unincorporated White River Township. They have the authority to fix Smith Valley Road where the Greenwood city limits end.
Ron West represents the three northernmost townships. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org. However, since all the residents of the county elect the commissioners, I also encourage the residents to contact Tom Kite at email@example.com and Brian Baird at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you prefer to call, you can contact the commissioner’s office at 317-346-4301.
Don’t settle for the solution of the Greenwood planning commission; call your county commissioners and let them know you need their help.
