FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) – The town of Fishers wants to make it easier for people to get around. Town officials are working on a new Master Plan to establish a network of trails.

The designers said they want to create a system that improves mobility around Fishers and improves the safety of people who use the trails.

Matt Stolle is a competitive cyclist who also lives in Fishers.

“I think it’s been a good push. There’s more bikes on the road,” Stolle said.

Wednesday night’s discussion was the second opportunity for Fishers residents to discuss the Master Plan concept.

“We have a good path system but we have a lot of gaps. And those gaps we’ve been trying to work on over the last two years,” Fishers Council member David George told 24-Hour News 8

“Different people like different types of paths. Some like sidewalks. Some like Monon-type trails. Others like to be on the road,” George said.

The designers will consider all of the opinions for the final presentation which is expected in June.

The Fishers Council is likely to begin its review of the plan in July.

“It’ll probably take two to three months from that point forward,” George said. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
