Why did the council choose the site on the northwest corner of 116th Street and Municipal Drive as the first public-private partnership downtown project?
There were a number of factors that led to this decision. Perhaps the most important of which is that, from a city planning perspective, this site and the “train station” site across Municipal Drive represent a unique opportunity to create a town square. Land planners have studied vibrant downtowns, both large and small, for centuries. A town square with civic spaces, residential options, shops, restaurants and public gathering spaces is a common element in most all those downtowns. In addition, because this site is owned by the city, it is an opportunity to increase and diversify the Fishers tax base long-term, after TIF bonds are paid off.
