Creekside Pride, an initiative that surfaced in 2018 through the Marion Chamber-led community visioning process known as ImagiNEXT, recently secured $40,000 in funding from the Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization to fund a master planning study for the Indian, Dry and Wanatee Creek corridors.
According to a news release, ISG was hired to complete the study with four goals in mind:
- Connect neighborhoods, public facilities and community amenities, such as parks and trails, to Indian Creek.
- Improve water quality and flood resiliency.
- Enhance recreational opportunities throughout the creek corridor.
- Support economic development and improve quality of life.

On Tuesday, July 19 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., the committee will host an open house in the atrium at Marion City Hall, 1225 6th Ave, Marion, to share the findings of the study. The consultant will then make a presentation during the City Council Work Session at 4 p.m. Community members are invited to attend.
