Small Town Oasis Project
Residents and business owners alike describe their towns as a good place to raise a family with a great cost of living. In short, Remington/Wolcott is the ideal location for anyone who embraces the best of small-town Indiana. It is a sanctuary between two of the nation’s urban cores, Chicago and Indianapolis, that preserves the past while embracing the future. That’s why the RWCDC has named its development efforts, The Small Town Oasis Project.
Remington/Wolcott residents and leaders have embraced the opportunity to develop a place that is welcoming for future residents and employers. Together, under the direction of The Remington Wolcott Community Development Commission, the towns have laid forward a vision to enhance the quality of life for current residents as well as future residents and business owners, both small and industrial in nature.
Current plans include:
- Revitalizing the downtown areas with improved streets, walkways, lighting and gateway signage and character-building elements
- Developing funding and training opportunities that support small businesses
- Building integrated housing options that complement the existing town structure to better attract a variety of new residents at every life stage
- Establishing more niche retail in the downtown areas, such as a bakery, pharmacy, car wash and ice cream parlor
- Developing a retail corridor along I-65 for franchise retail outlets
- Maintaining conservation areas along the U.S. 24/231 corridor that provide natural walkways and biking trails between the two towns
- Encouraging co-op businesses for current residents, such as a day care and a farmer’s market
- Building recreational and wellness facilities, including a trails network along Carpenters Creek, improved and expanded parks, and a fitness center
- Interspersing public gathering places with neighborhoods
- Developing educations and recreational activities that highlight the natural environment of the area, including the wooded slopes, wetlands and meadowlands surrounding the two towns
- Creating opportunities for youth and seniors that strengthen the personal and civic bonds between residents and between towns
