CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) — Carmel residents on Thursday night time acquired their first look at the doable plans for a new 63-acre park on the northeast aspect of town.
The Thomas Marcuccilli Nature Park will sit on River Road close to 146th Street, which is on the opposite aspect of the White River from Conner Prairie museum.
The space was initially meant to grow to be a big subdivision for new properties, however Carmel stakeholders had different plans. Michael Klitzing, director of Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation, mentioned. “Ultimately, the conversation became, well, maybe this place can become a public park because of our expertise in managing natural resources, and ultimately the developers agreed with that and donated the property to the park system.”
The park is known as after one of many co-founders of STAR Bank, which serves the Hamilton and Madison county areas.
The unveiling of the plans was at Harvest Church, 14550 River Road. Another public enter assembly to point out the plans shall be set for July.
