Fountain Square is getting a new fountain in a project that’s been in the works for more than a decade. Work on the $650,000 in improvements will begin next week with the removal of the Pioneer Family sculpture that sits atop the current fountain. The new fountain will feature a reproduction of the original Lady Spray statue that watched over the original fountain. The old statue will be moved to GarfieldPark for now but will return to the Fountain Square neighborhood in a later phase of the project. Southeast Neighborhood Development, or SEND, is sponsoring a kick-off celebration for the work at 3 p.m. Sept. 8 at the Shelbi Street Café & Bistro Lounge.

  • Great news for FS! Cory, what happened to the RSS Feed?
  • I, of course, will be there.
  • [No title]
    Benjamin: Your guess is as good as mine. I've alerted our web folks. It's also frustrating that the comments don't appear
    in the order they were made! Hopefully we'll get all these issues fixed soon.
  • When is the estimated date of completion?
  • The project will be completed by November 23 of this year. Look for the fountain to show up sometime in mid-October
  • I think the design is very thoughtful, which doesn't always happen with TE projects because of the number of people that have to be involved. Very good job by Eric Fulford.

  1. The deductible is entirely paid by the POWER account. No one ever has to contribute more than $25/month into the POWER account and it is often less. The only cost not paid out of the POWER account is the ER copay ($8-25) for non-emergent use of the ER. And under HIP 2.0, if a member calls the toll-free, 24 hour nurse line, and the nurse tells them to go to the ER, the copay is waived. It's also waived if the member is admitted to the hospital. Honestly, although it is certainly not "free" - I think Indiana has created a decent plan for the currently uninsured. Also consider that if a member obtains preventive care, she can lower her monthly contribution for the next year. Non-profits may pay up to 75% of the contribution on behalf of the member, and the member's employer may pay up to 50% of the contribution.

  2. I wonder if the governor could multi-task and talk to CMS about helping Indiana get our state based exchange going so Hoosiers don't lose subsidy if the court decision holds. One option I've seen is for states to contract with healthcare.gov. Or maybe Indiana isn't really interested in healthcare insurance coverage for Hoosiers.

  3. So, how much did either of YOU contribute? HGH Thank you Mr. Ozdemir for your investments in this city and your contribution to the arts.

  4. So heres brilliant planning for you...build a $30 M sports complex with tax dollars, yet send all the hotel tax revenue to Carmel and Fishers. Westfield will unlikely never see a payback but the hotel "centers" of Carmel and Fishers will get rich. Lousy strategy Andy Cook!

  5. AlanB, this is how it works...A corporate welfare queen makes a tiny contribution to the arts and gets tons of positive media from outlets like the IBJ. In turn, they are more easily to get their 10s of millions of dollars of corporate welfare (ironically from the same people who are against welfare for humans).
