Amended MOU – Purple Heart Parkway
Last year, the County and the City of Crawfordsville entered in to a Memorandum of Understanding to share the costs for the design and construction of an extension of Purple Heart Parkway from State Road 231 to Ladoga Road.
The approved “Amended Memorandum of Understanding” between the County and the City for this project provides for a few changes to the agreement.
The amended MOU changes the share of the cost of construction to 50% for each party. Previously, it was 59% for the County and 41% for the City. It also amends Section 5 pertaining to the recapture of expenses after annexation. Upon annexation of a portion of the “extension” by the City, the City will not be required to reimburse the County for expenses incurred on the project. The County is also releasing the City of its obligations under prior agreements to reimburse the County for expenses related to the extension of Purple Heart Parkway between State Road 231 and State 47 South if the City annexes land adjacent to this section of the road.
Section 6 clarifies that the City will construct sanitary sewer lines in the right of way to the serve the extension area upon the signing of voluntary annexation petitions by property owners along the north side of the extension. Section 7 clarifies that the City will engage the Indiana American Water Company to construct water lines in the right of way to serve the extension area. The construction of the water lines is also contingent upon receiving voluntary annexation petitions from the property owners along the north side of the extension.
