HSE School Board and Town of Fishers form exploratory group on indoor athletic facility


Officials from the Hamilton Southeastern School Board and Town of Fishers formed a joint sub-committee to explore the possibility of a new indoor athletic facility funded by both entities.

Town Councilor John Weingardt said the project is in its early stages, with many questions to be answered by the sub-committee.

“If done correctly, I think everyone in the community can gain something,” Town Manager Scott Fadness said.

According to Fadness, the sub-committee is tasked with investigating the scope, location and financing of the project.

Fadness said the talks on the project stem from increasing enrollment in the HSE School District.

A new facility could provide space for intramural activities for high school students, as well as recreation for both kids and adults in the town, including the S.P.O.R.T.S. organization.

Weingardt said a facility can give students in a highly competitive system the opportunity to participate in intramural sports and provide that type of outlet.

He said an indoor facility could at one point house a sectional basketball tournament.

Weingardt is also curious about the financial side of the project, but acknowledges how early it is in the discussion.

Fadness said the sub-committee included town councilors, school board members, Supt. Brian Smith and himself, but it had not been formalized.
