A community that is out of balance feels a little uncomfortable, doesn’t it? I couldn’t quite put my finger on it at first. There are so many good things about Fishers that we are lucky to enjoy. Then why does something feel wrong? I concluded that Fishers is lop-sided. Huge decisions are being made on residents’ behalf that we weren’t a part of. The pace of change is so fast that we can’t keep up with it all. Investments and attention are wholly focused on a tight, two-mile square area of our city. What about the other 35 miles of Fishers neighborhoods, roads, underutilized buildings and areas that could be improved?
I am committed to shining a light on the aspects of Fishers that are out of whack and unchecked. I will introduce action steps to be a collaborative counter point so that we can find a comfortable balance for all of us. A community that achieves balance will be ready for the future.
