INDIANAPOLIS -

A ceremony Monday to honor the 50th anniversary of Richard Lugar's election as mayor of Indianapolis will also include a special dedication. Current Mayor Joe Hogsett and former mayors Greg Ballard, Bart Peterson and Stephen Goldsmith will be on-hand as the City-County Building Plaza, set to open next summer after major renovations, will be re-named the Richard G. Lugar Plaza.

Lugar served two terms as mayor starting in 1967 and was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1976, serving until 2013. He is the longest-serving member of Congress in the history of the state and during his 37 years in the Senate, he focused on issues including food security, nuclear non-proliferation, energy independence and free trade. In 1969, his Unigov city and county consolidation plan was approved.

The new plaza will include a 30-jet interactive water feature, an event lawn that can hold 1,500 people and a large shade structure with swings. The ceremony is set for Monday, November 13 at 2:00 p.m.
