Following is the text from the Winter, 2011, City of Indian Hills Newsletter:
Your Mayor and City Council wish you HAPPY HOLIDAYS and a HEALTHFUL NEW YEAR.
We have had another stellar year in Indian Hills. No major storms, no major cleanup. We have a lot for which to be thankful.
As of the writing of this newsletter, our entrances at Old Brownsboro Road at Highland Cleaners and at Chenoweth Lane have been repaved. All the signage and directive arrows will be installed at these entrances. As soon as this takes place, we will rigorously enforce the right turn in and the right turn out at the Highland Cleaners, so please make your left turns onto Brownsboro Road at the turn light at Chenoweth Lane.
Garbage Collection and City Board Meeting Schedules: both of these items are attached to this newsletter. Eco-Tech Garbage Collection Schedule will identify holiday collection dates for 2012. Indian Hills Council Meeting Schedule will list the Board meeting dates for the new year. We always meet on the third Thursday of each month at the Louisville Boat Club at 6:00 p.m. Visitors are welcome, and are given the privilege of the floor at the beginning of each meeting.
METRO COUNCIL REDISTRICTING
Probably you have read in the Courier-Journal that as a result of the 2010 Census the Metro Districts have been redrawn. We are pleased that Indian Hills has not been affected by this change. We are still represented by Councilman Ken Fleming (District 7) on the west side of our City from Blankenbaker Lane west and Councilman Kelly Downard (District 16) from Blankenbaker Lane east. These two gentlemen do a good job of representing us and have been most responsive and helpful to anything that we have asked them to do. You may already know that Councilman Fleming has been instrumental in the improvements to the City entrances, for which we thank him.
POPLAR HILL PROPERTY
We reported in the fall, 2011, Newsletter that a homeowner is attempting to develop 10 plus acres on the east side of Blankenbaker Lane at Poplar Hill Road and build 12 homes on land where there are currently only two homes. The Metro Zoning Commission approved the development and a nearby property owner, joined by the City, appealed the Planning Commission's ruling to the Jefferson Circuit Court. The Jefferson Circuit Court found that the Planning Commission acted within its authority and denied our appeal. The homeowner and the City have appealed to the Court of Appeals of Kentucky. Appeals in civil cases are drawn out affairs, and this case is no exception. It will probably be at least another six months, and possibly longer, before the Court of Appeals rules on this case.
During the holiday season, it is typical for our area to see an increase in certain crimes, such as car break-ins and residential burglaries. Although it is always important to follow the tips listed below, it may be more so during this time. Criminals will take every advantage available; therefore we must make it as difficult as possible.

Have a safe and prosperous 2012!!!!
