The Digest

What’s coming in 2024? 🤔

The list for what’s coming in 2024 is long. Too much to fit in one newsletter. So over the next few weeks, we’ll visit the new businesses, projects, and places to come. The year is looking bright! Here’s a few in all categories to give you an idea:

  • Fishers event center – Fall 2024
  • Hotel Nickel Plate – Next month (February)
  • Total Solar Eclipse – April 8, 2024
  • Cafe Patachou – Soon, hopefully

By the way, what are your BOLD predictions for 2024? Will Hy-Vee ever open? Will Fishers annex Fortville? Will Fry’s become a roller rink and/or strip club?

Reply to this newsletter or send me an email at [email protected]. Your predictions will be featured in an upcoming issue.

Civil center, art center, and theatre

Rendering of Fishers City Hall complex

Fishers Municipal Circle will look juuust a little different this year.

  • New council: Tiffanie Ditlevson (R-at-large), John DeLucia (R-NC District), and Bill Stuart (D-SW District)
  • New building: Around May/June, the new City Hall will be complete and in use.

The new building will serve a triple purpose as an art center, a theatre, and the government’s offices. The art center will be operated by The Indianapolis Art Center Inc, a local nonprofit.

💡FAQ: Wasn’t the old building sinking? Why rebuild on the same spot?

A fine question indeed. Supposedly, the original building wasn’t done correctly in the first place (it did last 31 years though). So architecting the new building right meant building on the same spot wasn’t an issue.

💸 Teacher grant apps open

One big thing: The $500,000 Teachers grant applications open today.

Lump-sum grants are available to ALL educators in the HSE school system. The project you submit must be something new and can’t be things like a pizza party 😂 Grants are approved on a rolling basis, so teachers can take their time thinking through their project without a hard deadline. This is the first year a program like this has existed in Fishers, and I expect it to be very popular.

If you are or know of an educator in the HSE school district. Make sure to share this with them (and use your referral code below to get rewarded)! Learn more and apply here.
