Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness is Fishers' first elected mayor.

Greetings from the Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness

Greetings Fishers Residents,

2024 is the year that we’ve all been waiting for – the opening of the Fishers Municipal Complex featuring the new Fishers Art Center; the debut of the new Fishers Event Center, an 8,000-plus-seat entertainment venue that will serve as the home of the Indy Fuel, Indy Ignite and Fishers Freight; the groundbreaking of Fishers Community Center at Johnson Farm, set to open in 2025; and long-awaited enhancements to the Nickel Plate Trail, including new public art, amenities and trail connections.

It’s never been a more exciting time to call Fishers home. Over the past 150 years our community has transformed from a small farming community, to a sleepy suburb, to a vibrant city featuring world-class destinations, unique dining and retail, and a state-designated cultural district; a place known as one of the best places to live and one of the safest cities in America, with award-winning schools and an outstanding parks system spanning nearly 800 acres.

2024 also marks a record investment in our neighborhoods and trails. We’ve drastically increased funding for our Neighborhood Vibrancy Grant program, providing residents and HOAs with an additional $650,000 in funding to create new community spaces and keep Fishers beautiful. We recently opened Geist Greenway, a new pedestrian trail in east Fishers that improves connectivity to popular destinations like Geist Park. The Nickel Plate Trail is now fully paved from 96th Street to 146th Street and offers more than five miles of dining and recreation, from coffee shops, breweries, and restaurants to the natural beauty of Cheeney Creek. As Indianapolis and Noblesville complete their portions of the trail, Fishers residents can easily walk, run and bike between these neighboring communities.

I’m so excited that you’re here, and know that you are part of a thriving community where connection, innovation and transparency are valued. Our doors are always open. I encourage you to come to our monthly City Council meetings, engage our staff at community events, and share your feedback on how we can better serve you.

Yours in Service,
Scott Fadness
