Noblesville Parks Department To Offer Self-Defense Class For Women

From the Noblesville Mayor’s office:
Join Noblesville Parks and Recreation for A Fighting Chance—a self-defense class on Sunday, August 7 from 1:30pm – 4:30pm at Forest Park Lodge.  This class is for women of all ages.  No one is exempt from a potential assault, but women are at a particular disadvantage as they are typically lessor in size and strength.  A Fighting Chance teaches women how to use their strongest weapons against an aggressor’s weakest targets.

Taught by instructor Marita Bower, this program was developed by an Arizona police officer specializing in assaults.  The program addresses how to avoid an attack, how to escape if you cannot avoid an attack, and how to survive if you cannot escape an attack.  Level I includes self-defense techniques against the nine most common sexual assault scenarios.  Hands-on instruction and practice is an integral part of this course.
Registration is open at Noblesville Parks until August 3 or until the class is full, whichever comes first.  Cost for the program is $45 per person and the program is recommended for women ages 13 and older.  This is a perfect class for high school and college students in preparation for the school year ahead.  For more information or to register, call the Noblesville Parks Department at (317) 770-5750.

Noblesville Common Council Approves Resolution

From the Noblesville Mayor’s office:
At its recent meeting, the Noblesville Common Council voted 4 -2 to approve a resolution to offer an incentive package for Positron.  Positron is a molecular imaging company that will be relocating its corporate headquarters, research and development, and manufacturing facilities to Noblesville.  Positron will also build a cyclotron in Noblesville that will be the highest energy commercial cyclotron for isotope production in the United States.

“We are thrilled that Council approved the incentive package so that Positron can take the next steps to relocate to Noblesville and expand.  One of the city’s goals is to attract more high technology, high paying jobs which this project will do.  This agreement is a success for both the city and Positron,” said Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear.

In addition to the jobs that Positron will bring, additional jobs are expected to come from complementary businesses that will relocate in order to be close to the cyclotron.

Positron will be providing capital of over $50 million for the new Noblesville facility.  The city will create a specific tax increment financing (TIF) district and will use the projected tax revenue from within that district to fund the incentive amount which will then be distributed to Positron in four separate installments.  Positron must meet specific criteria before the city will release any of the payments.

Mosquito Control Efforts Continue

From the Noblesville Mayor’s office:

The Noblesville Street Department has already begun to treat for mosquitoes due to the early emergence of mosquitoes this season.  The treatment that the Street Department uses is environmentally safe and conforms to all EPA standards.  Crews will be making regular passes throughout the city with the fogging vehicles, but residents are welcome to report areas in the city where they have noticed either standing water or high levels of mosquitoes.  Treatment will take place Monday through Thursday evenings from approximately 7pm until 11pm, weather permitting.  The Street Department does not treat if it is raining or if there are winds over six miles per hour.
Residents can help reduce the mosquito problem by searching their property for any items or areas that hold water and then draining that water.  Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes and often contains high concentrations of mosquito larvae.  Areas that are prone to standing water include gutters, unused bird baths, wading pools, old tires, and uneven areas in gardens or lawns, to name just a few.
To report areas of concern or for more information, please call the Noblesville Street Department at 776-6348.
