"Homeplace", a previously unincorporated area in Hamilton County with Indianapolis addresses was annexed March 1, 2018 into the City of Carmel, IN.

The approximately 1100 households in Homeplace have Indianapolis addresses assigned by the NORA post office, despite living miles into Hamilton County. This has long plagued residents with problems. 

Now annexed by the City of Carmel, in Hamilton County it will be untenable for residents to have an Indianapolis, Marion County address.

Many of the problems caused will cause financial burdens to residents that could be resolved by merely changing the address. Other problems caused by the Indianapolis address could have life or death consequences. 

Examples of how having an Indianapolis address harms Homeplace now Carmel residents, 

o  Emergency service vehicles being misdirected by confusion over what city a call has come from based on mailing address information. Real example - ADT's misdirection of Fire services dependent on Indianapolis address resulted in no service for a Fire call. Indianapolis does not service Hamilton County and neither responded to the call NOR notified Carmel. ADT based on mailing address information of Indianapolis did not notify Carmel Fire. A person depending on a security service fire alarm could have their house burn down only 1/2 mile from a fire station. This homeowner had called ADT on a regular basis to prevent this circumstance ever occurring but it happened anyway based solely on the incorrect mailing address.  

o  Homeowners housing values diminished because their mailing addresses place them in a less prestigious community.

o  Charge higher Indianapolis, Marion county insurance rates to homeowners and drivers who live in Carmel, IN in Hamilton County. Only because they have Indianapolis zip codes. The homeowners do pay Carmel property taxes.
