Fishers City Council delays sports complex decision – for now


Sports complex

The Fishers City Council has further delayed the decision regarding the proposed $76.4 million sports complex. The vote was anticipated to come on the June 15 city council meeting. This marks the second delay of a final decision regarding the complex.

The delay comes from a hesitation on a finalized financial plan which could include an incentives plan for a $2 million tax abatement over a 10 year period. But the delay shouldn’t last long, as a special meeting is expected to be held soon to confirm the fiscal plan for the arena.

The privately funded, 245,000 square-foot arena, headed by Noblesville-based GK Sports and Entertainment, plans to feature a 6000-plus seating capacity with multiple areas for parking of more than 600 vehicles. The building will include both hard and turf based fields for flexible use by several different sports with room for up to 32 basketball/volleyball courts, a full football field, a second story with a wrap-around track for public and private use, a 200-meter running track and

The complex is expected to be complete by mid-2016 and will be located near 136th Street and Olio Road, of I-69.
