The project will be privately funded by GK Sports and Entertainment and built near Saxony Village. It will have a 4,200-seat arena, 245,000-square-foot fieldhouse and 600-space parking garage. The idea is for the facilities to host “a variety of hard-court or turf sports,” according to Fishers officials. A medical office and future hotel are also expected.

As part of the proposal, the city council will consider April 20 a proposal for a 10-year tax abatement, a waiver of impact and permit fees and a 20-year lease agreement with the city for use of the facilities. The 20-year agreement would allow use of the courts or turf from Monday-Thursday and community access to a walking/jogging track Monday-Friday.

The full project will see a city council vote on May 18.

The public is invited to three meetings that will provide information. They are all at 6 p.m. Here are the dates and locations:

  • April 22, Crosspoint Church, 13678 Silverstone Drive
