"Focus areas" for building a better Evansville announced

Posted: Updated:

Ideas from the people come together to help build a better Evansville.

After months of "VOICE" sessions with the public organizers announce where folks want to see improvement.

City core, healthy greenspaces and experiences are the 3 focus areas announced Thursday night.

Now the next step is for groups to figure out how to make these goals a reality.

Ideas were collected during 32 voice sessions, with more than 1,700 people pitching in.

Nick Wildeman would like to see more entertainment opportunities for young professionals.

"When you're trying to attract a key demographic to an area and retain that demographic, it makes sense that you have to have experiential things for you to take part in," said Wildeman.

Another Big Action Meeting was held Friday morning in the Browning Room at the Central Library.
