We’re a mere 6 weeks into 2016, and already this year’s job commitments exceed all those announced in 2015. At last year’s state of the city, Mayor Fadness set the stage for a future where residents can live, work and play right here in Fishers. The opportunity to ditch the commute and work in the community where one lives and plays is a huge factor in residents’ overall quality of life.
In his 2016 State of the City address Wednesday, Mayor Fadness announced two headquarter projects planned for Fishers; STANLEY Security and Braden Business Systems. Just yesterday, Republic Services announced a new regional center planned along the I-69 corporate corridor in Fishers.
Mayor Fadness told Gerry Dick of Inside Indiana Business, “Yesterday was not there you go, we’re done for the year, it was we’re just getting started and look where the momentum is.”
