The North Indian Trail Neighborhood Council was formally recognized by the City Council on Monday.
Indian Trail is the second neighborhood to include both city and county residents. Five Mile Prairie Neighborhood also straddles city-county lines.
Almost 100 North Indian Trail residents gathered last month to organize the neighborhood council. “We have been here before you in the past. We were a very active group unofficially. Now we are glad to be here officially,” said Mike Page, a neighborhood resident.
“We look forward to coming here as a part of the city’s system,” he added. “Good things are happening.”
Molly Myers attended the neighborhood’s organizational meeting in September.
“Attendance was excellent, and there was lively discussion,” she said.
The neighborhood has rallied around a number of issues in the past, including development, roads, schools and parks. There are now 10 neighborhood councils.
