Environmental Group, Developer Plan Indiana Trailhead

Last updated on Sunday, May 20, 2018

(ANDERSON) - An environmental group is working with a developer on plans for a proposed recreational trail in Indiana instead of a stalled reservoir project.

The Herald Bulletin reports that the Hoosier Environmental Council and Sandor Development believe the proposed Mounds Greenway Trailhead District will be the spark needed to revitalize Anderson's main retail corridor.

Officials believe the proposed trailhead loop and improved canoe launch could expand to include a playground, brewpub, picnic area and live music stage.

The groups worked with the Sustainable Communities Institute at Ball State University to create a development plan that would protect and enhance the White River waterway and bolster business.

The $450 million Mounds Lake Reservoir was proposed by Madison County officials but stalled after Yorktown and Daleville officials voted against it in 2015.
