'Imagine Orleans' Results

Last updated on Monday, July 23, 2012

(ORLEANS) - A number of Orleans residents, community leaders, merchants and business owners participated in the recent Community Visioning Workshop, and the results of that session will be unveiled Tuesday.

A public presentation on the downtown revitalization ideas is planned for 6:30 p.m. in the Orleans High School cafeteria.

"We would very much like to encourage Orleans residents to come out and hear and see the final recommendations as well as also have an opportunity to comment or ask questions about any of the proposals." said Robert Henderson, Orleans clerk-treasurer and executive director of the Orleans Chamber of Commerce.

The Imagine Orleans Steering Committee will host an old-fashioned ice cream social that evening as an added feature.

The three-day workshop focusing on the historic downtown area was planned in conjunction with Ball State University. Faculty members and students are working with town and chamber officials this summer in developing a comprehensive plan called "Imagine Orleans."

"We want to express a huge thanks to everyone who has participated and helped with the visioning process to date. It has been a total community effort," Henderson said.

"Our Ball State team has been great to work with and has done an excellent job. We look forward to hearing their final recommendations," said Orleans Town Council President Mike Fields.

More information on the project can be found by visiting the website: ImagineOrleans.org.
