Opportunities to Live-Work-Play Expand in Fishers

Posted to Fishers, Indiana on February 17, 2016 at 10:17 AM by Blog Admin

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.” 

2016 Jobs Announcements At-A-Glance
- 60,000 sq. ft. golf entertainment venue along 116th near Cumberland Road
- $118 million investment
- 135 salaried, full time jobs and 375 part-time jobs 

STANLEY Security
- Stanley will move from its current headquarters at 9998 Crosspoint Boulevard in Fishers to an 80,000 sq. ft., three-story building at Fishers Point Business Park

- Employees from Noblesville and out of state locations will transfer to the new headquarters; no employees from the company's Indianapolis location will transfer

Sneak Peek: 2016 State of the City

Posted to Fishers, Indiana on January 29, 2016 at 3:39 PM by Blog Admin

At last year’s State of the City, Mayor Fadness cast the vision for a smart, vibrant, entrepreneurial Fishers. Over the course of the year, you’ve heard how this vision will set Fishers up for a sustainable future.

City staff was challenged to think smart, vibrant and entrepreneurial in all of their efforts for our community. That focused intentionality brought forth some initiatives that we should all be proud of.

Together with Community Health Network, we gathered community leaders to see what we could and should do about the state of mental health in our community. We knew that a smart, collaborative approach was necessary, so the Mental Health Task Force met each month for nearly a year to develop strategic objectives. The task force has already begun implementing the action plan we shared with the community last November.

Soon, Fishers Police Department will begin using technology in innovative ways to keep our neighborhoods safer and more connected. More exciting news will be coming on this front soon.

When leaders learned of a staff member’s upcoming deployment, they brainstormed ways to help his family during his time away. They didn’t stop there, though. Fishers DPW developed a program that marshals our community’s resources to alleviate the burdens families face during the deployment of a head of household. Fishers’ families with a deployed head of household have received snow clearing services this winter season. In the warmer months, Fishers DPW will offer lawn care for these families.

In the last few months of 2015, we announced projects that will make a significant impact on our community, including the opportunity to develop land at the Fishers Metropolitan Airport, IKEA, and the SR37 project in partnership with INDOT and Hamilton County. 

We won't rest on our laurels this year, though. Mayor Fadness continues to challenge City staff and the community at large to further our aspirations of being a smart, vibrant entrepreneurial city. 

This month, we’ll have several more exciting economic development announcements. Together, these new projects will add thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in investments for our city. 

In the new year, Fishers leaders will continue to work together each day to make Fishers the best city in Indiana.
