FISHERS - The city of Fishers has unveiled drawings of planned improvements to the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater. Construction, for which the city has set aside up to $7 million, is expected to be complete in the summer. The city says plans call for a new pavilion and stage, as well as work to elevate the lawn and enhancements to sidewalk connectivity and aesthetics. "Centrally-located" restroom facilities will also be built.

Construction is already underway and Fishers-based Myers Construction Management and Meyer Najem Construction were approved for the contract earlier this week. The AMP, as it's called, initially opened in 2012, and the city says nearly 5,000 visitors attend concerts held at the venue. In addition to concerts, The AMP also hosts farmers' markets, movies and community-wide events.

The new pavilion will measure 17,000 square-feet and the stage will be 25 feet deeper than the current configuration. You can connect to more on the project by clicking here.
