Ohio Riverfront Vision & Strategic Plan – July 14

Across the board, Evansville Region riverfronts have been a central topic for the last century, and it is my privilege to invite you to join us on Thursday, July 14, for an engaging discussion about the immense potential they hold for our communityʼs growth and prosperity. We have carefully selected three convenient locations to ensure maximum participation and accessibility for all interested individuals.

The Ohio Riverfront Vision and Strategic Plan aims to gather valuable insights, innovative ideas and diverse perspectives from community members like you. This comprehensive initiative will guide our regionʼs development along the riverfronts, ensuring that our actions align with the desires and aspirations of our residents.

We have scheduled three interactive sessions to accommodate different schedules and preferences:

Date: Thursday, July 13
Time: 10-11 AM
Location: The Landing in Mount Vernon
Address: 111 E. Water St.

Date: Thursday, July 13
Time: 2-3 PM
Location: Honey Moon Coffee in Newburgh
Address: 20 W. Water St.

Date: Friday, July 14
Time: 3-7 PM
Location: The Pagoda in Downtown Evansville
Address: 401 SE Riverside Dr.

At these gatherings, we encourage you to share your vision for our regionʼs riverfronts and contribute your unique perspectives on how we can enhance the natural beauty, recreational opportunities and economic vitality of our riverfront areas. Your input is invaluable, and together we can shape the future of our community.

The sessions will be facilitated by Sasaki, a global leader in design with expertise ranging from landscape architects and civil engineers to urban planning and facilitating community visions. They will guide us through a series of interactive activities designed to encourage creativity, collaboration and open dialogue. Whether you are a resident, business owner or stakeholder invested in our regionʼs progress, we urge you to lend your voice to this essential endeavor.

Please mark your calendar for the session that suits your availability best. Additionally, feel free to invite friends, colleagues or others who share your passion for our communityʼs growth and the preservation of our riverfront heritage. Their participation will enrich the discussions and contribute to the overall success of the Ohio Riverfront Vision and Strategic Plan.

Thank you in advance for your valuable contribution to this initiative. Together, we can create a shared vision that will guide our region toward a brighter, more sustainable future.
