Home Place plans to appeal ruling

January 1, 2007
The annexation battle between Carmel and Home Place isn't over yet.

Residents in the unincorporated community voted Saturday to appeal the Oct. 17 decision in City of Carmel v. Certain Home Place Annexation Territory Landowners, No. 29A04-0510-CV-578.

Attorney Stephen Buschmann plans to file a petition this week asking the Indiana Supreme Court to hear the appeal. The Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Carmel last month, holding the city adequately proved it could afford to annex part of the nearby community and that Hamilton Superior Judge William Hughes had erred in auditing a financial plan and ruling in favor of the remonstrators.
