INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Sept. 2, 2014) -- Marian University and local officials plan on unveiling big plans Tuesday about the future of the Indy Cycloplex and the surrounding Riverside corridor.
In an announcement scheduled for 10:30 a.m., Marian University's president will be joined by Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and representatives from Indiana Sports Corp and St. Vincent Health.
Mark Apple, Vice President of Marketing Communications for Marian University, which partners with the City of Indianapolis to run the Indy Cycloplex and Major Taylor Velodrome, told FOX59 News that memorandums of understanding have been signed with the national governing organizations of some in Indianapolis' amateur sports community regarding the future development of the facility and surrounding area.
"Over the next six months, several organizations are going to get together and look at ways that we can partner with one another to redevelop that area around the Velodrome and the Cycloplex," Apple said without revealing the specific organizations involved ahead of Tuesday's announcement.
"It could end up in a variety of different projects. We could end up with new sporting facilities for youth. It could end up with some of those governing bodies relocating their facilities to the Velodrome. [We] really don’t know yet; that’s what the next six months will tell us.”
Tuesday's announcement is taking place at the Velodrome. This story will be updated with new information as it becomes available.
