Our Planning + Economic Development Group does it again for a third consecutive year – winning big in the Hoosier Planning Awards. We received two honorable mentions in 2018 competition. We’ve now won eight awards in three years in the annual event sponsored by the Indiana Chapter of the American Planning Association. Congrats to our entire planning team who continually create planning documents that drive results for communities. Read on for the details.
- Broadway Fortville TIF District Master Plan – honorable mention in the Outstanding Economic Development Plan category. The master plan creates an identity and sense of place by providing guidance on transportation enhancements and bicycle and pedestrian facilities that complement previous land use recommendations, redevelopment strategies, and development guidelines. It also contains short-term and long-term recommendations for multimodal transportation solutions that over time will aid in transforming the Broadway TIF District into a denser, active, pedestrian-oriented area with unique shopping, dining and creational activities that contribute to an improved quality of life for Fortville.
- Union City Artist Alliance – honorable mention in the Outstanding Implementation category. Union City leaders, with guidance from American Structurepoint, have made great strides in marketing this program that brings artists to Union City to design, implement, and complete public art projects during a one-year residency.
