In 2015, the City commenced a community-wide initiative to set the roadmap for the City’s next 25 years of growth with the 2040 Comprehensive Plan.
Four different subcommittees oversaw strategic planning and goal setting for this plan:
Housing and Neighborhoods
Parks & Open Space
Future Land Use
In 2021 the City of Fishers completed its first 5-year update and one of the major directives of the Housing and Neighborhoods Subcommittee is to create a Housing Taskforce to give special attention to broader housing needs and topics in the community. Through an RFP process the City of Fishers selected Urban Partners to complete the Study. It was completed in January 2022.
Currently the Fishers Advisory Committee on Disability and the City of Fishers has continued its relationship with Urban Partners as they perform an Accessible Housing addendum to the study.
The Allisonville Road Corridor Study will examine roadway character, adjacent land uses, bicycle and pedestrian amenities, and other elements that together define this important corridor between 106th and 126th streets. The goal is to ensure that the corridor remains a contributing commercial destination that neighboring residents are proud of and that reflects the current vision of the city. Objectives of the plan include:
Establish an identity for the corridor.
Define desired development characteristics for adjacent uses.
Promote development and reinvestment in vacant and underutilized properties.
Identify strategic city investments to support corridor redevelopment.
Improve walkability between the commercial district, surrounding neighborhoods, Nickel Plate Trail, Roy G. Holland Memorial Park, and the White River.
Support existing residential areas within and adjacent to the corridor to ensure their continued desirability as successful neighborhoods.
