Planners unveil draft plan to revitalize White RiverFebruary 19, 2019
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — A draft plan for transforming the largely underused White River into a haven for central Indiana recreation calls for rock climbing, bird watching and zip lining.
The Indianapolis Business Journal reports that Agency Landscaping and Planning recently unveiled a draft plan for revitalizing 58 miles (93 kilometers) of the White River that runs through Hamilton and Marion counties. The company presented concepts such as a rock climbing wall at a quarry, a floating stage where bands can play and a riverside field for bison grazing.
The city of Indianapolis and Hamilton County Tourism Inc. launched the efforts last year. Development along the riverfront in the two counties is scattered with only a few recreational opportunities.
The concepts are still being developed, and planners will present a finalized plan this spring.
