Establish A Riverwalk On Pigeon Creek:
The Riverwalk on Pigeon Creek would draw tourists to the west side of downtown in order to increase the popularity of the entertainment district around it. It would have the potential to increase business in downtown, the north side, and the east side of town. It would also be able to connect to the Wabash and Erie Canal on the east side. Revenue from the riverwalk could be used for maintenance for the greenway.
Here’s how I would pay for it: I would set up a TIF district along the riverwalk where sales tax revenue of private businesses would pay for the riverwalk construction.
