Fishers Community & Recreation Center
For several years, the City of Fishers has discussed the need for a community and recreation center. While previous attempts at a facility with private investors have ultimately failed, the need for a community and recreational space-- and the corresponding amenities-- have continued to grow.
In recent years, the City of Fishers has found itself in a favorable financial and economic position to independently offer a community and recreational center to Fishers residents.
In ensuring the facility or facilities reflect the wants and needs of our diverse community, the City tasked Fishers City Councilman Todd Zimmerman with organizing a steering committee, to help identify the perceived needs of the community, as they pertain to a community center.
Composed of thirteen community stakeholders, the steering committee provided insight from a variety of perspectives, including industry professionals, residents, and leaders in the Fishers community.
This document summarizes the recreational and arts/culture needs of Fishers, as perceived by the steering committee, City Staff, and resident survey input throughout a community-based needs assessment.
The vision presented in this document is conceptual and will be utilized as a guiding tool as the City moves forward with Phase II of the development of a facility or facilities. Suggested amenities and programming in this document serve as reference for the City and future consultants, as they establish a financially feasible and equitable plan to meet the physical, operational, and budgetary needs of a future facility.
