Indy East Motel - Meeting Tonight

Those attending the April meeting of the Irvington Community Council were told that the attorney for the Indy East Motel had made an offer to close the Indy East Motel in exchange for dropping the various legal actions against the motel. There are currently three (3) legal actions surrounding the closing of the Indy East. The terms of the offer proposed by the Indy East include listing the motel property for sale with a licensed real estate broker; closing the motel thirty (30) days after a sale or by the end of this year, which ever comes first; that the owner would not apply for a motel license in 2009 or any time thereafter; and that while the motel remains in operation they would provide uniformed security on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Late last week, the City made a counter offer. The Irvington Community Council has made arrangements for the lead attorney for the City, Mrs. Teri Kendrick, to come to Irvington and discuss the status of the three (3) legal cases and discuss the motel's offer. The discussion will begin at 7:00pm tonight in Room G1 of the Irvington Presbyterian Church, 55 South Johnson Avenue. All in Irvington are welcome and encouraged to attend and find out the latest on the Indy East Motel.

I know that this comment is not especially timely as the Indy East Motel has now been closed, apparently, for some time. The citizens of Irvington succeeded in closing this business after much work. I would like to express an opposing view. My son and I have stayed at the Indy East Motel during the Indy 500 weekend for five or six years. We were always treated very well. Despite the exterior appearance, the rooms were ALWAYS clean. There were no insects. The rooms were tastefully decorated, though there were paint spatters and other minor issues. But the TV worked, the A/C worked, the telephone worked. It was quiet. Though I returned to the motel late at night, I was never harassed, propositioned, offered drugs or had any other problem, nor did my son. The motel was criticized for having sex offenders as residents. Well, Irvington, guess what? You now have NINE sex offenders living in the 5800 block of East Washington, FOUR living in the 5900 block, and TWO living a block away from the 5800 block. So now that you can't harass the Indy East anymore, what are you going to do about all of these sex offenders in your supposedly now safe neighborhood?
