As I watch the vaccination rate of those ages 12+ in Indiana, I continue to see Zionsville (the 46077 zip code) among the highest vaccination rates in the state. As I type this, 46077 is 80.8% fully vaccinated for those ages 12+. That's the second-highest zip code in the state. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Boone County Health Department and its volunteers, to community leaders working together and to you… our residents. Zionsville is truly leading the way in Indiana.
I am thankful to the Boone County Health Department for running the county’s vaccination site with utmost efficiency and care to visitors and to our residents for understanding the importance of rolling up our sleeves. There is still work to be done - Boone County has been deemed "yellow" by the Indiana State Department of Health. Please continue to do your part. This month the Boone County Health Department vaccine clinic accepts walk-ins, but appointments can be made at ourshot.in.gov.
There is so much reason to be hopeful and I am excited for the second half of 2021 – the return of the Zionsville Farmers’ Market, families eating out together at restaurants and momentum in Town projects including the Municipal Action Center, the Zionsville Gateway Area and the Wayfinding Master Plan. Progress continues on the Big-4 Rail Trail north extension (from Heritage Trail Park to the common boundary with Whitestown) and south extension (past the bridge over Eagle Creek). On the north, the Parks Department is finalizing corridor easements, land acquisition and construction documents. On the south, the project recently went out for bid and was awarded. Construction will begin shortly.
