The Times


The Hamilton County Leadership Academy has scheduled a community discussion on the Nickel Plate Railroad, for 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. April 27, at Hamilton Heights High School, 25802 Ind. 19, Arcadia.

A team of students enrolled in the Hamilton County Leadership Academy began studying the Nickel Plate Rail corridor in fall 2016 to evaluate the ideal use of this corridor for all of Hamilton County - rail or trail.

While the scope and urgency of the team's project changed with the February announcement by Fishers and Noblesville to convert 9.2 miles of the railroad tracks to a multipurpose trail - the intent to study both uses has not.

The group's fact-finding approach on the pros and cons of converting a rail corridor to a pedestrian trail will continue with a Community Conversation panel discussion and public forum on the Nickel Plate.

Attendees are encouraged to come with questions, which will be taken at the door prior to the event. These questions will be discussed by the panelists as time permits after the initial panel discussion comes to a close.

Please note that the panelists are volunteering their time to participate at this event and are not directly involved in the ultimate decision that will be made by local government units. The academy asks those attending to be respectful and courteous when expressing thoughts and comments.

For questions about this event, please email Adam Peat. For more information on HCLA, please check out their website at: www.hcla.net.
