Action Plan Download
Fishers developed its action plan to enhance its park network by redesigning public spaces to be inclusive and ADA accessible. The city will also alter its zoning ordinances to allow the development of ADU's, which promote aging in place and expand affordability for existing residents. The plan commits the city to expand walkability, improve signage, increase bike lanes, and improve public transportation through efficiency measures. Furthermore, the plan calls on Fisher to improve communication with older residents, and use its police and fire departments to engage with older adults.
