Do you want to know about communities that are growing in Central Indiana – look no further than Fishers, Indiana. They are exploding with new openings (IKEA & Top Golf) and when you talk about cutting edge, they are the place to be. We’re also bringing back Jennifer Magley of Open Gym Indy to talk about her incredible event Fempire Rising. All this and more, today on the Edge!

It’s an exciting time to live in Fishers, Indiana and we are excited to talk to the mayor of Fishers Scott Fadness this week! In the past month, three major openings have happened in Fishers – IKEA, Top Golf, and Portillos. So this week we get the behind the scenes view of what it took to draw those companies to his town and Central Indiana.

Prior to his election as the first mayor of Fishers, Scott Fadness was the Town Manager from 2011-14 and the Deputy Town Manager from 2009-11 and helped oversee the day-to-day operations of the public works, engineering, fleet management and the parks & recreation departments. And at only 35 years old, what does the future hold for Mayor Fadness? Listen to our fun interview with the Mayor of Fishers, Scott Fadness!
