It is a tool for letting the Town of Avon know what you think should be fixed. You can take and upload pictures of the problem you see. Requests are located using a point on a map. The Town of Avon can respond to you or ask additional questions.
'Avon Indiana Action Center', powered by SeeClickFix, is an easy way for residents to report concerns directly to the Town of Avon and have department staff follow up to resolve the issues. Please use a detailed address, description, and photo (if possible) to give as much information to the Town of Avon staff so they can investigate and determine the best way to address your concerns. You are encouraged to enter your email address on reports in order to get automated updates on the status of your issue as Town of Avon staff work to resolve it. This system is best suited to respond to service requests like potholes, street lights, etc. that can be assigned to staff and addressed in a timely manner. Issues requiring immediate attention or those dealing with public safety should be reported directly to the Town of Avon Police at 317-839-8700 as this system is not monitored 24/7.
'Avon Indiana Action Center' by SeeClickFix is an additional resource for community members to report infrastructure issues. Using the app is an efficient way to raise awareness within the Town of Avon without having to make a phone call. The app streamlines the process of submitting a photo, description of the issue, and location; also, 'Avon Indiana Action Center' allows you to track the status of reported issues.
Issues threatening public safety or things needing immediate attention (like downed wires, tree limbs, or needles), should be reported directly to the Avon Indiana Police Non-Emergency Line at 317-839-8700. Things that require long-term planning, a larger discussion, a community process, or involve multiple departments or non-Town of Avon entities should be directed to the appropriate department by phone call or email as these issues are not easily "fixable" in the same way a pothole, streetlight, etc. are.
This system is best suited to respond to service requests like potholes, street lights, etc. that can be assigned to staff and addressed in a timely manner.

There is no cost to the user to use 'Avon Indiana Action Center' by SeeClickFix. Our app is free for download, and the browser version is free with no download required.
Nope! You have the choice to either download the mobile app or use the web-based version. Both work the same. However, if you download the app, when there are updates to requests you have submitted or followed, you will be notified. The choice is yours.
Dan Jones shouldn't be closed during construction. Please note that we not only used italics, but also bold font, to emphasize that word. Some contractors do things that are outside of our control, and as prepared and organized as our Public Works team is, occasionally those contractors will act on their own accord without notifying the Town of Avon. If a road is scheduled to be closed, we will update avonindiana.gov/danjones as soon as possible, as well as send out an alert through our alert system. You can easily sign up for alerts at avonindiana.gov/alerts from a desktop, tablet or mobile device.
The bridge on Dan Jones is technically under the jurisdiction of Hendricks County and CSX. Although The Town of Avon isn't supervising it's construction, we are taking measures to try to stay up to date with all that is happening. What does that mean to residents and those that are passing through? Primarily it means that construction can starts whenever Hendricks County wants it to start. To our most recent knowledge, the bridge project is hoping to bid out this year (2023) with a possible start time of 2024. If you would like more information about the bridge project specifically, you are welcome to reach out to the Hendricks County engineering department at https://www.co.hendricks.in.us/egov/apps/locations/facilities.egov?view=detail&id=6
That is a question that we will never be able to 100% answer. We hope to have each phase done as quickly and safely as possible, but putting an end date on each phase would be unreliable. Things happen while construction occurs, and while we hope that nothing causes a delay, the truth is there are some things that are outside of our control. Placing a "completion date" or "end date" only opens the floodgates of frustration. This might change over the course of the projects, and if it does, we will happily share a date that can be delivered on.
If any part of your property will be needed for the Dan Jones Widening Project, you will be contacted by the Town of Avon well in advance of any construction happening. There are many steps in the process, but simply put, nothing will happen on your property without you having the opportunity to know about it. If you still have concerns, you are welcome to reach out to Public Works Director Steve Moore with your questions.
No. A stop sign and a break in the center median is all that is planned.
Beechwood will have the same access as you had/have before construction started, except the center median will provide a refuge area for eastbound left turners.
Access will be maintained for Clarks Creek Ct. throughout the project.
According to the blueprint images on Phase 1 and Phase 2, there will be a 10 foot "Shared-Use Path" on the eastern side of Dan Jones.
Dan Jones is being widened because it carries substantially more traffic than Avon Ave. (About 30% more). The Town’s long-term plans do anticipate widening both but Avon Ave widening is probably 8-10 years out based on current traffic volumes and anticipated traffic growth. A bridge over CSX at CR 900 E is financially and engineering wise an impossibility. CSX has several buildings and over 50 tracks that would need to be spanned. The cost benefit analysis on a bridge would show it is not a good investment for the tax payers of Avon.
The simple answer is that Dan Jones has more traffic daily. Those traveling to and from Plainfield and Brownsburg make up for a lot of the traffic, in addition to those, like yourself, that travel on Dan Jones from Avon. Yes, during the widening on PHASE 1, you will have to merge back down and go to one lane each way over the bridge... currently. There are four other phases in this project... one of those will be the bridge phase, where the bridge will be modified to match how Dan Jones is being widened. The whole project can't happen simultaneously unless we close Dan Jones completely, which would be worse. As mentioned, many, many times, this is a multi-phased project, and though it's frustrating and rough right now, the way the process is being done is much better than how it could be done.
Side note: Unless you have extremely small planes, I doubt you could get 1 plane on that bridge, let alone two.

They vary from the grueling and physical to mentally taxing. Past events have included obstacle courses, mud pie slinging, slip and slides, trivia challenges, and puzzles. And every once in a while we like to combine them to really mix things up!
Absolutely not: you don't even have to be a 1 mile runner!

Yes we do! This policy is also called a "Snow Removal Policy". The most up-to-date digital version can be found on our website at https://www.avongov.org/DocumentCenter/View/964/Snow-Removal-Policy-PDF?bidId=
2 inches or more of snow, we start plowing the primary roads. Once primary roads are done, we start the secondary roads/neighborhoods.
There is not a way to avoid plowing snow into driveways. Attempts will be made to keep excess amounts from accumulating; however, each driveway will receive a certain amount of snow.
No, if this occurs the Town will not be responsible for re-plowing streets.
We try to be proactive when possible, pre-treating primary roads and areas where slick spots exist.
Gibbs Road, CR 450 E, CR 475 E, CR 500 E, CR 525 E, Vestal Road, CR 625 E, Avon Ave, Dan Jones Road, CR 900 E, Ronald Reagan Parkway, CR 1050 E, Raceway Road, CR 200 N, CR 100 N, CR 91 N, CR 100 S, Oriole Way (CR 150 S), CR 200 S, and CR 300 S
During snow storms, you are not to park on the street. This is dangerous and makes it very hard to plow our Town Roads. Please move your vehicles into your driveways, so that the plow trucks can do their job safely and thoroughly.
Please submit your claim via Action Center at avongov.org/actioncenter and a member of our Public Works team will get back to you ASAP.
Avon’s stormwater utility manages the runoff from rainfall. In nature, water flows from fields to streams to rivers and so on, but commercial, residential and industrial development has changed some of these natural flows. The stormwater system helps to prevent flooding and limits pollutants flowing into streams and rivers. A property owner’s stormwater bill funds the cost of operations, maintenance, capital projects and planning for future system expansion.
In 2016, Avon conducted a feasibility study that recommended an equitable, research-based structure for potential stormwater customer rates. The Town accomplished this by instituting rates based upon the amount of impervious surface area on each property. Impervious surface is a term used for how much property is covered by impenetrable materials (asphalt, concrete, roofs, etc.).
An average Avon home’s impervious surface area - 3,942 sq. ft. - established the base billing unit, called the Equivalent Residential Unit (ERU). Residential customers will be charged one ERU per month (3 per quarterly billing cycle), while non-residential customers will be charged multiple ERUs per month based on the property’s total impervious area divided by 3,942 sq. ft.
Best of luck on your move! You don't have to do anything to stop or change service with us. We collaborate with Hendricks County to obtain an updated list of property owners each quarter. You are responsible for the bill if you were the property owner on record with the Hendricks County Assessor's Office on the first day of the billing quarter, but after that, you shouldn't get any more bills. If you're still getting bills, or have additional questions, please give us a call at the Avon Public Works Department 317-272-0948. Be sure to tell the operator you have a Stormwater Utility question.
You will need to complete a Hendricks County Online Change of Address Request Form. You can download a PDF instruction sheet HERE.
The Stormwater Utility is billed quarterly to the property owner on record with the Hendricks County Assessor's Office on the first day of the quarter. If you have further questions, please call the Avon Public Works Department at 317-272-0948 and tell the operator you have a question about the Stormwater Utility.
We're sorry about that! Please call the Stormwater Utility customer service line at 833-286-9057.
The Stormwater Utility Board approved several drainage improvement projects in June 2018. Check the Stormwater Utility Capital Improvement Project to see if your area has already been included on this list.

You can also call the Avon Public Works Department at 317-272-0948 and let the operator know you're calling about the Stormwater Utility. We're happy to hear from you, but we encourage you to use the above form so there's a record of your complaint and so we can track progress on your issue.
Unless otherwise stated meetings occur on the first Wednesday of every month. Please visit the Stormwater Utility Board webpage for the schedule and further details.
Avon town officials commissioned a feasibility study in 2016 to look at an equitable, research-based structure for potential customer rates.
The potential rates are based upon the amount of impervious surface area on each property. Impervious surfaces – roofs, paving, concrete, gravel, etc. – do not allow stormwater to soak into the ground. Impervious surfaces increase urban runoff that must be directed through drainage infrastructure. More runoff creates more demand for infrastructure.
The study calculated the average impervious area from the residential customer class to establish the base billing unit, called the Equivalent Residential Unit (ERU). Residential customers would be charged one ERU per billing cycle. Other customer classes would be charged multiple ERUs per billing cycle based on the property’s impervious area ratio to the base billing unit.
Customer Class Rates:
These rates were adopted by the Avon Town Council on November 16, 2017 (Avon Ordinance 2017-25)
If you have any more questions, please call the Avon Public Works Department at 317-272-0948.
No problem! Please give us a call at the Avon Public Works Department: 317-272-0948. Or you are welcome to CLICK HERE to email us. If you call, be sure to tell our operator that you have a Stormwater Utility question.
Annexation enables Avon residents to manage future growth in the area that will directly impact the Avon community in issues such as schools, housing quality, roads, and economic development.
Residential properties with a Gross Assessed Value of $93,500 or more will not pay more taxes for one acre of the property, which includes the home because they are at the 1% property tax cap. Portions of residential property in the area greater than the one-acre will be at the 3% property tax cap and may pay an additional amount. Properties assessed by the County Assessor in the agricultural category are already at the 2% property tax cap and will not pay more taxes unless there is a portion in the 3% property tax cap category.
The Town Council introduces an annexation ordinance, adopts a fiscal plan for the annexation, notifies property owners of the public hearing, holds the public hearing, considers changes to the ordinance based on public comment, and votes on the final adoption of the annexation ordinance.
Some of the services include:
No. Trash collection is a private service.
Yes, for stormwater, permits, and police reports. Some of the permits are gun permits, alarm permits, and planning/ building permits. The stormwater fee for residential property is $6 per month and replaces the legal drain fee. Chapter 4, Article 12 of the Town Code lists the fees of the Town. It is online at www.avongov.org.
Yes. Residents will be able to serve on Town Boards and Commissions, run for elected office, and vote for the Town Council, Town Judge, and Clerk-Treasurer.
The Town Council is responsible for governing the Town.
The current list of Council Members can be found at www.avongov.gov/towncouncil
No. The zip code is determined by the United States Postal Service and is not related to Town boundaries. In the past, the Town has had discussions with the United States Postal Service about having an Avon zip code for additional areas but this is unrelated to annexation.
No. Water and sewer services are provided by other entities that are not part of the Town government.
The Town currently contracts our snow removal services. We have seven single-axle trucks and between 23-25 pickup trucks to complete snow removal services. The Town, in cooperation with our contractor, could very quickly and easily add additional resources if needed because of reorganization or annexation. It would be much more difficult if we utilized our own staff and had to buy equipment and hire more people. In terms of cost, the Town would receive additional resources to pay for snow removal services if reorganization or annexation occurs.
