Fishers plans open house to discuss train plaza options

FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) – Tuesday evening, Hoosiers have a chance to influence the direction of a new development in Hamilton County.

The Town of Fishers has planned an open house to discuss options for a re-designed train plaza. The town has a series of sketches that show what the what the “Nickel Plate District” might look like, someday.

Members of the Fishers Parks and Recreation Department will accept suggestions about changes that might be incorporated in the re-design.

“The residents of Fishers have asked for a vibrant, walkable downtown,” said Town Manager Scott Fadness in a press release. “The train station plaza is an important piece of the puzzle, and we look forward to hearing from the residents, what they would like to see in the new space.”

The re-design requires removal of the current, mid-1990s train station north of 116th Street. But, the town says the changes “for the enhanced train platform and pedestrian plaza include ticket windows, public restrooms and better Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility. Residents can also expect plaza seating and bike racks, while the platform will accommodate future mass transit needs.”

The open house will be Tuesday night in the Varsity Gym at Hamilton Southeastern High School. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.
