Evansville city leaders introduced the “Build 4 Evansville” quality of life initiative earlier this year. The focus is on four city projects including the Mesker Amphitheatre, Roberts Park, a new indoor pool to replace Lloyd Pool, and a new South American penguin exhibit at Mesker Park Zoo.
Brad Byrd sits down with Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke to break down each of the four projects in the “Build 4 Evansville” initiative. Mayor Winnecke also responds to Indiana Governor Mike Pence holding an announcement on Thursday, June 30, at Ellis Park regarding Interstate 69.
Mayor Winnecke also discusses the land banking program in the effort to combat blighted properties in Evansville and the city receiving a “Promise Zone” designation.
