What are the Pro's and Con's of moving to Avon, Indiana? Here area few things to consider if you're not from the area.

  1. Location - Avon, Indiana was not established until 1995, and is a much newer town than the surrounding communities of Brownsburg, Plainfield, and Danville. The surrounding towns have their own unique identities, and Avon is situated right in between these towns, making it an easy drive for about any shopping or dining you desire. Despite its late start there are plenty of things to like about it, in fact, in 2017 Money magazine named it the 17th best place to live in the USA. Since it got a late start there isn't an "old town" or "downtown Avon" area, like most towns have. There has been discussion to try and develop something like that, but it's a long ways down the road if it ever happens. 

  2. Parks - The Avon area has a lot of nice parks in the area. Most notably Avon Town Hall Park, and Washington Township Park. Both parks combined offer most of what people look for including trails, playgrounds, splashpad, disk golf, RC car track, sports courts, fishing ponds, and more. In addition to these, the township area is in the planning stages of developing a large outdoor aquatic center and pools, slated to open in 2022. There are also 2-3 other smaller parks that will be developed in the coming years.  

  3. Traffic - This is one of the negatives. As Avon has grown tremendously in the last 20 years the traffic on the main thoroughfare of Rockville Road (US36) can get pretty slow during rush hours and on weekends. Luckily there are alternative routes that run parallel to this road where drivers can take those roads, and then cut right to Rockville road where there destination is. There is a big reconstruction project planned for Rockville road that should be starting in 2021, which will make it 6 lanes instead of 4 lanes, but this is a multiyear project and will take time. 

  4. Schools: The school system is rated very high, although you really can't go wrong with any school system in Hendricks County. Avon schools are very well known for their marching band, and have played at many very well known events across the country.
     
  5. Property Taxes: Avon voters passed an additional school funding tax that started in 2019. This additional tax is based on the value of your home, but generally adds about $300-$600 per year to your tax bill and goes to the school system. This is the only school system in Hendricks County that has it as of right now, but other school systems have been attempting to pass the same thing. So, property taxes in Avon are a little higher than surrounding towns.

  6. Bonus: In 2020, Costco has announced they will be building a new store in Avon. Everyone is very excited for this.
