McCordsville Downtown Plan

This planning process will develop a phased Concept Plan for the development of a Town Center in McCordsville. A strong blend of community input, Advisory Group participation, and engagement with local business and community leaders will inform the vision plan.  A series of recommendations will accompany the plan, including cost projections, policy and governance suggestions, and phasing scenarios.

WHY A TOWN CENTER? 

1. Develop a unique identity and character for our community.  In many ways, McCordsville has been perceived as a residential extension of Lawrence and Fishers. McCordsville residents and officials alike want to develop a unique identity and character for the Town which will celebrate our proud history and heritage as a community.

2. Form a connected, walkable town center to create experiences for our community. We desire a destination in McCordsville which attracts and draws visitors into the core of the Town to experience the culture, enjoy social events, and patronize local businesses. We envision a walkable, beautiful place to connect with our growing trail system.

3. Enhance community economic development opportunities while growing a diversified tax base. We seek opportunities for diverse development that will continue to grow and stabilize a healthy tax base. Housing, retail, and office options are all important to growing our community.
