 Carmel Bike Share Pioneers New Technology

Carmel, IN – It just got easier than ever to join, ride and enjoy the Carmel Bike Share program with the debut of a new mobile app and locking system that lets riders rent and ride bikes at the touch of a button on their phones. A sleek new interface on the mobile app streamlines the process of creating a new account and offers easy access to rider support, while new mapping technology provides point-by-point directions to the nearest docking station. Developed by Carmel’s Bike Share provider, Zagster, the new technology platform is the first of its kind in the U.S. bike share industry — and Carmel is one of the first programs in the nation to offer it to riders.

“Carmel is proud to partner with Zagster to offer the newest technology to our community. With more than 188 miles of multi-use paths and trails, we have always placed a high value on transportation alternatives for both residents and visitors,” said Mayor Jim Brainard. “Growing our Carmel Bike Share program supports our efforts to continue being a bicycle-friendly community.”

Now, with just the single touch of a button in the new Zagster app, riders can control a Bluetooth-enabled locking system that features two points of security. A new locking mechanism allows riders to tether bikes to non-Zagster stations for mid-ride stops. It’s important to note that riders will need to return their bikes to a Zagster station to end their trip.

This unique hybrid model, which blends dockless locking for mid-trip stops with fixed station locations for beginning and ending rides, is key because it allows Carmel’s riders to plan their trips around their destinations — and not just around station locations. And because the locking system has no detachable pieces that could be misplaced or misused, the new user experience is versatile, convenient and hassle-free.

“Our riders wanted the ability to make several stops along their way more easily and lock their bike without having to be at a share station. Zagster worked to accommodate them based on feedback and we’re pleased they were able to do so,” said Brainard. “The idea is to make the ride as convenient as possible to reduce any barrier the rider may have.”

The Carmel Bike Share features 90 bikes at 11 locations for users to make local, on-demand trips. Riders can join the program by signing up for monthly or annual memberships. Rides for the first hour are free, and then just three dollars per hour after that for memberships. Daily and hourly rates are also available. For more information, including a map of locations and a registration form can be found at

About Zagster

Founded in 2007 and headquartered in Cambridge, Mass., Zagster is the largest and fastest-growing bike-share provider in the United States. Zagster works directly with more than 150 communities in more than 30 states across North America to make bike sharing available in areas where traditional bike-share providers can’t reach. Unlike other programs in which riders must drop off bikes at designated stations for every stop, Zagster’s programs give users the freedom to ride as long as they want, wherever they want. And because Zagster manages all aspects of its programs — from bikes and technology, to maintenance and marketing — Zagster partners can create and deploy scalable bike-share systems that best suit their needs and work within their budgets.

‘Late Night on Main’ returns to Main Street

Friday night event is first of 4 street parties in 2017


CARMEL, IN –Are you ready for a late night street party in the Carmel Arts & Design District? Join us Friday, May 26, from 9 p. m. to Midnight for the first of four “Late Night on Main” events on Main Street. The City will shut down the block just east of Range Line Road to make way for musical entertainment from the Carl Storie Band, dancing in the street and enjoying the eats and treats from local vendors who will be staying up late with us.

Late Night on Main was launched in 2016 as part of the U.S. Mayors Conference Opening Night celebration. The city received a great deal of positive feedback on that event and another held in conjunction with the BMW Championship, prompting the expansion to four events in 2017.

“Our goal with these exciting late night events in the Arts & Design District is to boost our night life entertainment and bring people together to share music, dining and a little shopping in a unique setting under the stars,” said Mayor Jim Brainard. “The events also provide a great opportunity to see the new developments underway and businesses in the District that they might not notice if they only drive through or have not visited recently.”

With our goal of bringing more attention to different sections of Main Street, the Late Night on Main events will be moved east and west on Main Street throughout the year. Last year, both events were held in the city block near the Monon Greenway, but this year, our first Late Night on Main will be a few blocks to the west. Patrons on the patios of Woody’s Library Restaurant and Agave Mexican Grill will have front row seats to the show!

This means Main Street from Range Line Road to 1st Avenue NE/NW will be closed Friday beginning about 3 p.m. so preparations can be made, including the placement of a stage for the band. Detour signs will be in place to direct traffic around the closure.  Plan for extra time Friday evening if your commute includes Main Street.

Mark your calendars for upcoming Late Night on Main events July 1, August 19 and October 7.

Parking is available at city parking garages and other public parking spaces. Click here to see a parking map.  (

Carmel Urban Forestry to give tips and free tree seedlings at May 6 event 

CARMEL, IN – Carmel will recognize its 29th Arbor Day on Saturday, May 6th at the opening day of the Carmel Farmers Market on Center Green.  The City of Carmel along with the Carmel Urban Forestry Committee will be present at Booth #9 from 8-11:30 a.m. to answer landscaping questions and provide guidance on proper tree planting, mulching and pruning while also handing out free tree seedlings including; Kentucky coffeetree, shagbark hickory and Norway spruce.

Carmel was named a 2016 Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation. This is the 23rd consecutive year the City has been honored for its commitment to urban forest management. Carmel also received its 21st consecutive Tree City USA Growth Award for demonstrating environmental improvement and a higher level of tree care. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation in cooperation with USDA Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters.

“Everyone benefits when we educate and implement proper tree care practices. All we have to do is look around this spring season to see all the beauty the urban forest gives to our community,” said Nichole Speth, Carmel Urban Forestry Specialist.  “Only when trees are cared for properly will they grow and provide countless environmental, social and economic benefits.”

The urban forestry staff along and the Urban Forestry Committee will present the annual Donna Manlove Award and the Commercial Beautification Award to the recipients at a later date during the next CNAN meeting.

Please visit us at our booth where there will be International Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborists and City Urban Forestry staff to answer your questions.

Monon Greenway Widening

Monon Greenway to be widened through Midtown, Arts & Design District; new bike lanes, sidewalks, green spaces

CARMEL, IN – The City of Carmel announced today a major widening and expansion of the popular Monon Greenway through the heart of Midtown and the Arts & Design District – a new Monon Boulevard that will transform the current 12-foot wide path into a multi-faceted 140-foot wide right-of-way section that will include new dedicated lanes for cycling, buffer zones, sidewalks, green spaces, one-way streets with additional parking on either side of the trail and a new Midtown Plaza at 4th Street SW near the Allied Solutions corporate headquarters.
The expanded trail will serve a rapidly growing Midtown redevelopment area where the city is partnering with private developers to create a new, vibrant corridor connecting our City Center and Arts & Design redevelopment districts, which will include a mix of offices, restaurants, retail and residential units in what was once city’s primary industrial area.
“This new expanded Monon Boulevard will quickly become a major epicenter of activity in Midtown and the Arts & Design District; a place where our residents and visitors will be able to take a stroll after a show at the Palladium, walk or bike to dinner or spend a Saturday afternoon with their children and pets on the trail or in one of many new green spaces and plazas,” said Mayor Jim Brainard. “It is also designed to function as a corridor for many who will live and work in this area, providing a safe way to commute to their jobs or take a short walk to the market.”
An average of more than 300,000 people run, walk or bike on the Monon Greenway from Main Street traveling south to the Palladium each year, making it one of the most congested stretches of the trail in Carmel. The new project will separate those who are on the trail for leisure and those who are more aggressively seeking physical activity.
In addition, the plans call for neighborhood green spaces, additional trees, arts plazas, community benches, kiosks, spray plaza, bocce ball court, connections to popular destinations and the Midtown Plaza that will feature bicycle parking, public art, outdoor café spaces and other features.
Plans call for work to begin by July of 2017 and take about 12 months to complete. The estimated cost of the Monon Boulevard and Midtown Plaza projects ranges from $20 million to $23 million, which will come from a variety of sources including bonds and developer commitments. The Monon Greenway will be detoured during portions of this construction project.

Heart and Soul Westfield IN Clinic Provides Free Medical Services to Less Fortunate


medical equipment

For most people in Westfield, the ability to see a doctor for the most basic medical needs is an afterthought and often taken for granted. But for others in Westfield and the surrounding areas, basic medical care is impossible to obtain because of the cost and lack of insurance. Fortunately, the Heart and Soul Clinic in Westfield provides such a service to the people of Westfield who cannot afford it.

Started in 2009, the Heart and Soul Clinic offers free health care for uninsured and under-insured residents of Hamilton County, including acute medical care, prescriptions, health education, physicals and health referrals. The Heart and Soul Clinic also provides spiritual counseling and guidance for patients.

Staffed completely by volunteers, including a doctor and nurse practitioner, the clinic is open the second and fourth Saturdays of each month from 9 a.m. to noon. Along with the work of volunteers, the clinic relies on monetary and other donations from the public.
