FISHERS, Ind. (AP) -- An Indianapolis suburb will begin the transition from the town to city this Tuesday, as voters in the Indianapolis suburb vote in its first municipal primary election.
 
Over the past 25 years, the town of Fishers has metamorphosed into a cluster of growth sprawled across more than 33 miles.
 
Despite a handful of local industries and office buildings, most of the community's 81,000 residents work elsewhere. Residents came for peace and quiet, and got rapid growth.
 
The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/1ogodNj ) that some think living there is enough. But others want to follow the path of the suburb of Carmel to the west, which has transformed from a bedroom community into a self-contained city.
 
Tuesday's ballot for city offices contains few Democrats. All of the mayoral candidates are Republicans
