Indianola could add as many as 156 more homes ranging from single family homes to apartments after the Indianola Planning and Zoning commission approved moving three projects forward at a meeting April 21.

If you are approving 156 new homes to be built, what about police and fire protection plus schools? You are all cheering at the price of $250,000 for a home but it is just blocking out lower income individuals who would like to own a home! It is pretty clear you want Indianola to be a bunch of rich, yuppie residents. You need the green space. The developer can live with it! There needs to be a place for a park for kids to play and don't give that old tired song and dance about there are enough parks and school yards to play in. Ever gone to one of those parks when it is busy???? Didn't think so! The green space is also needed for the environment. You are digging up farm land and putting down cement for drives, streets and sidewalks. That puts more heat into the atmosphere. Why does Indianola have to grow to be the size of West Des Moines, Waukee or Ankeny????? Why can't we just be Indianola? You are thinking with your pocketbooks and not your brains!
