White River Vision Plan, Action Phase

White River Plan

Mark your calendars! The White River Vision Plan has entered its Action Phase and you will have an opportunity to share your thoughts about initial design concepts for several destinations on the river.

As part of this phase, concepts and design plans will be created to develop the White River and include themes, events and experiences already in place in the 58 miles of river in Marion and Hamilton Counties. Please plan to come to one or more of these public meetings:

January 29, 6 to 8 p.m.
Conner Prairie, 13400 Allisonville Road, Fishers

January 30, noon to 1:30 p.m.
MIBOR, 1912 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis

January 30, 6 to 8 p.m.
Sun King Brewery, 135 North College Avenue, Indianapolis

January 31, 6 to 8 p.m.
Riverside High School, 3010 North White River Parkway, Indianapolis

You also can complete the online White River Vision Survey about how you use White River and what you want to see for its future! It now includes an interactive Map Survey so you can drop pins in your favorite spots along the river.

The White River Vision Plan is a joint effort between the City of Indianapolis and Hamilton County Tourism, Inc. in partnership with Visit Indy, to develop a comprehensive and coordinated regional, community-driven plan to enhance 58 miles of the White River in Marion and Hamilton counties. The goal of the vision plan is to create an accessible, recreational, and cultural environment that encourages a unique sense of place for the community as a whole, similar to finished “river city” developments in cities like Nashville, Columbus, Chicago, and Cincinnati.
