In the midst of Hamilton County, Forbes magazine’s choice as the number one place in the nation to raise a family, Carmel continues to create and protect the community assets that attract great businesses and residents. As one of the fastest growing cities in Indiana, Carmel has a reputation for being a safe, family–oriented city. One with exceptional high-achieving schools, a nationally-recognized public library, strong support for the arts and an appreciation for their role in creating and sustaining growth and excellence.
Carmel is a city to experience. Located in Clay Township, in Hamilton County, Indiana, and home to nearly 70,000 residents, Carmel is situated immediately north of Indianapolis near major interstates and highways. The vibrant and eclectic Arts & Design District on the Monon Trail boasts unique shops and restaurants and hosts ongoing activities and festivals throughout the year, and the city’s 800 acres of greenspace, parks and trails make it a great place to live and work.
Carmel is a city on the move. The innovative use of more than 50 roundabouts to control traffic, rather than traditional intersections, has earned Carmel a national reputation. Construction is underway for Carmel City Center, a vibrant downtown neighborhood alive with a mix of residences, shopping, arts and entertainment, office space and culture. The new area will include the Regional Performing Arts Center, which includes The Palladium concert hall and multiple theaters and is home to the Feinstein Foundation for the Education and Preservation of the Great American Songbook. Carmel’s future is brighter than ever, thanks to the investment of the city’s growing number of successful businesses, community involvement and visionary planning.
