The discovery phase of the White River Vision Plan is available to view online. The comprehensive review of the 58 miles of river in Marion and Hamilton Counties includes information on river access, ecology, recreation and more. Experts and residents gathered input for the report from April through July of this year.

“This report is the first time the public can see everything the core team found in its research and the feedback we’ve heard so far from the community,” said Emily Mack, director of the Department of Metropolitan Development for the City of Indianapolis. “As we work to keep the community involved in the process, this report gives the community a baseline of current conditions and the possibilities for the White River Vision Plan.”

The report is divided into four themes- Reveal History, Express Identity, Experience Nature, and Connect Communities. You can view the draft report by clicking here.

Residents are also now able to participate in a five-minute interactive mapping survey at MyWhiteRiver.com. The 12-month planning period ends in April 2019. 

In July, Indianapolis Department of Metropolitan Development Director Emily Mack and Hamilton County Tourism Inc. Chief Executive Officer Brenda Myers appeared on Inside INdiana Business with Gerry Dick to talk about the White River Vision Plan. You can watch that full interview by clicking the link below:
