DANVILLE, IN (April 12, 2024) – Visit Hendricks County (VHC), in partnership with The Indiana Communities Institute at Ball State University, has launched a new survey to better understand how residents of Hendricks County spend their free time and engage with local amenities. The study aims to identify residents' preferences for various activities and amenities, with a focus on arts and culture, outdoor experiences, events, festivals and recreational facilities.

Residents are encouraged to participate in the multi-pronged study, which includes both community meetings and online surveys. These opportunities will enable residents to express what they love about where they live and contribute to shaping the future vision of Hendricks County.

Jaime Bohler Smith, executive director/CEO of Visit Hendricks County, emphasized the importance of resident input: "With this information, we will be able to determine what both residents and visitors want more of in Hendricks County."

Community meetings will be held at various locations throughout the county, with open house style sessions to accommodate residents' schedules. Residents should allot 15-30 minutes to attend the community meetings. All community meetings will be held from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at these dates and locations:

  • Monday, April 22: Tri-West High School Auditorium, 7883 Ind. 39, Lizton
