The Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization is awarding funds to several planning projects throughout central Indiana. The IMPO says the projects in Fishers, Greenfield, Indianapolis and Lawrence will each receive a $75,000 grant to address infrastructure and transportation needs.
“Funding opportunities like this one are extremely helpful in laying the groundwork for seeking funding for future investments,” said Anna Gremling, executive director of the IMPO.
The projects are listed below:
City of Fishers Greenway and Trails Study – The city of Fishers will create a citywide greenways study, which will identify primary pedestrian routes and priority gaps in the pedestrian network. With the new Nickel Plate Trail and Geist Greenway, city leaders want to expand the Fishers 2040 Bike and Pedestrian Map.
IndyMoves 2.0 – The city of Indianapolis will update the IndyMoves integrated transportation plan, which incorporates the county’s Pedestrian Plan, Greenways Plan and Thoroughfare Plan, as well as the IMPO’s Regional Freight Plan, Regional Safety Plan and others. The updated plan is intended to help the city identify capital needs.
Charging Greenfield – The city of Greenfield will study and plan for electric vehicle charging stations. The plan will include information needed to pursue public-private partnerships for the infrastructure.
City of Lawrence Capital Improvement Plan & Program – The city of Lawrence will establish a Capital Improvement Plan & Program, which will prioritize infrastructure needs over the next 20 years and develop a revenue-constrained list for the first five years of the plan period.
Charging Lawrence – The city of Lawrence will study and plan for electric vehicle charging stations. The plan will include information needed to pursue public-private partnerships for the infrastructure.
