Group 2 Visions

  • Education for all to connect with real-world
  • connecting all schools and community
  • Evansville youth council
  • road & infrastructure improvements–a direct, interstate link to Indianapolis. Once the final leg of Interstate 69 is finally completed, hopefully within the next 3-4 years the area should see an immediate and significant increase in trade between Indianapolis and our regional counties. Ideally it would also eventually tie into a loop system of high volume interstate, or comparable, roads, with interchanges at major thoroughfares and also without traffic signals or any stops, that would encompass the entire 5 county region. The entire region’s population would benefit and grow by leaps and bounds
  • Repurposing the many, still standing, abandoned factories and vacant warehouses that were running at full capacity back in Evansville’s manufacturing heyday. They could be used for low income housing and/or small business incubators or just demolished and use the land for low income housing and green space. Downtown is quickly being rebuilt and will soon have no room to grow so expanding north of Lloyd Expressway and west of First avenue would be the next best direction to expand.
