The town of Speedway wants the public’s input on future development projects.

The town recently received a $60,000 Comprehensive Planning Grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs.

Town Manager Grant Kleinhenz said a feedback survey is available online.

“This should be community driven, not council driven or a town staff driven, or consultant driven. We really want to make sure we get our residents' thoughts and input,” Kleinbenz said.

The plan will act as a road map for the future growth of Speedway.

“The thing that we always will focus on and focus on is obviously the track, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” Kleinhenz said. “But there are other opportunities for improved recreational opportunities, gathering places and community events."

Community input opportunities will also be available at local events this month, including the Speedway Chamber Jazz Festival on Sept. 17 and Taste of Speedway on Sept. 22.

Town officials hope to approve a plan by February or March 2023.
