The Vanderburgh County Commissioners, Evansville-Vanderburgh County Area Plan Commission (APC), and Evansville Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPO) have partnered to create the University Parkway Corridor Management and Land Use Plan. The team of Rundell Ernstberger Associates, Lochmueller Group, and Power’s Engineering Inc will be assisting the APC and MPO throughout the planning process.
The parkway serves as an important transportation thoroughfare in western Vanderburgh County, connecting State Route 62 and the University of Southern Indiana north to State Route 66. The goal of the corridor plan is to coordinate transportation investments with planned future development. The project area includes approximately 6,000 acres and is bounded by State Road 66 to the north; State Road 62 to the south; Schutte Road, Peerless Road, and Church Road to the east; and the Vanderburgh/Posey county line to the west.
Multiple land use scenarios and transportation system improvements will be evaluated. A preferred land use and transportation system will be recommended along with access management strategies and bicycle and pedestrian facilities to ensure safety and maintain the integrity of the corridor. These recommendations will build off the recently adopted Evansville-Vanderburgh County Comprehensive Plan 2015-2035 and other existing plans related to the area. The planning process will include a review of existing conditions, multiple opportunities for public input, recommendations for future development and infrastructure improvements, and potential amendments to the zoning ordinance to ensure future development meets the vision and intent of the corridor plan.

There are 8 major sections of the plan as well as an overlay district that will be create during this process
The Vanderburgh County Commissioners, Evansville-Vanderburgh County Area Plan Commission (APC), and Evansville Metropolitan Planning Organization (EMPO) invites all citizens to participate in a Public Workshop on September 18, 2017. The workshop will focus on issues and opportunities along the University Parkway corridor. Your input is important to the development of the plan which will address land use and transportation issues along the corridor. There will be an informative presentation and a series of small work group exercises asking participants… What types of uses are most appropriate? What should the corridor look like? How can bicyclists and pedestrians be more safe? What are the assets the corridor plan should focus on? These and other question will be discussed.
As documents are prepared as part of the University Parkway Corridor Plan, they will be posted here for the public to review and provide comment. Click on a link below to download the pdf file.
