Over the past year, city leaders and residents from Marion and Hamilton Counties have worked together to develop a community-driven plan enhance 58 miles of the White River that have experienced decades of ecological degradation and under-utilization.
The vision plan will offer recommendations with details for completion and ways to support projects and infrastructure included in the plan. The plan also involves ways to secure funding to ensure execution of the vision plan once approved.
Focus areas of the plan include:
- Access to the White River for residents and visitors — our two largest, most important audiences
- Environmental value and ecological quality of the river corridor, including its water quality and natural habitats
- Connection to attractions, arts and entertainment venues, hiking and biking trails, and neighborhoods
- Experiences along the water that contribute to our shared cultural heritage and history
On Monday, June 3, 2019 at 9am, the White River Vision Plan will be unveiled at the Indianapolis Art Center, kicking off a week of activities centered around the river.
