Accessibility
Fishers is recognized as being one of the best places to live in America, and it is important that this is true for all residents. We aim to optimize accessibility, to provide safe and usable pedestrian facilities, buildings, and parks for all residents. It is through the ongoing public input and a commitment to education and awareness that the we will continue to ensure that it is one of the most livable, accessible, and best places to live in the United States.
