School-Trade Partnership Gets a Boost
. Earlier this year, the proposed Hub & Spoke project was in the news with its innovative partnership between the City of Fishers and Hamilton Southeastern Schools to connect students with trade professionals and provide work- and project-based learning experiences. This week, the Fishers City Council gave preliminary approval to a 10-year tax abatement for the developers of the building and approved $3.125 million in road project bonds. Construction on the $15.65 million, 85,000 square-foot building (which will house retail showrooms, cooperative work and shop space, dedicated office space, maker’s space, a training facility and community connect space) has already begun and is anticipated to be completed in April.
