Watch for signs going up soon that will welcome you to Fishers. At its meeting on April 7th, the Town Council approved contracts to have the signs made and installed at 13 locations around town that were chosen because they are either a city gateway, a key entry point gateway or a district gateway.

The locations designated are:

96th St. and Allisonville Rd., 146th St. and Allisonville Rd., 136th St. and Olio Rd and Southeastern Parkway, 96th St. and Olio Rd., 96th St. and I-69 Interchange, 116th St. and I-69 interchange, 141st St. and State Rd. 37, 116th St. and Lantern Rd., 96th St. and Hague Rd., 116th St. and Eller Rd., 96th St. and Fall Creek Rd., Fall Creek and Brooks School Rd., 113th St. and Olio Rd., 106th St. and Geist Rd., and the future 106th St. and I-69 interchange.

The gateways that are in the Geist district will include a sculptural element of an abstract sail and sailboats celebrating the water theme of the area. The Geist welcome signs will also use its own distinctive logo. The first to be installed will be the signs at 96th St. and Allisonville Rd.

The plan, developed by the Fishers Community Development staff with the departments of Public Works and Engineering has two phases, the second of which is a wayfinding plan with streets signs that will direct visitors to important or popular sites.

The plan calls the gateway and wayfinding initiatives important in raising the public’s awareness of Fishers’ assets and nurturing a sense of civic pride through consistent branding. And it notes that this will give the city a competitive edge as a regional destination for visitors; a rewarding place to live, work and play; and a desirable community in which to own a business.
