Q: 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.
