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. I keep wondering why I keep hearing about this problem of corporations leaving America, and I never hear a reasonable proposal to lower corporate tax rates and raise personal rates on income from capital gains and dividends, especially for high earners. It is just too simple of a solution for Congress to embrace?

  3. is a disaster. SR37 already needs to be built to interstate standards between 465 and SR144. Southport Road is a mess each morning and evening.

  4. Bass Pro Shops would be good for the mall as well as a Giant Eagle Market District or a Jungle Jim's International Market Place grocery store like the one near Cincinnati Ohio.A Disney quest indoor theme park would be good.An Academy outdoor store would be good too.Indoor Circus shows and magic shows would be good as well. A casino with sports bar would be good.A Disney theater inside that shows movies and Broadway shows would work.Nashville Tennessee concert shops with indoor neon lights would be good.How about a theater that shows travel shows and theme parks. A train store would be good.How about a giant toy store with high tech video games.

  5. This development is in addition to Allpoints Midwest 5, Aitrtek, a recent FedEx and more in Plainfield. Greenwood and Brownsburg also have similar projects.
