A new development along the Wabash River Trail could be possible, if organizers are able to raise $50,000 by the end of the year.
 
Officials of the Wabash Marketplace Design Committee announced plans for the development on Thursday, Nov. 17. Plans call for the creation of a riverfront plaza featuring two gazebos, seating and landscaping. There also will be a deck that overlooks the river.
 
The $50,000 is needed to serve as matching funds for an Indiana Housing and Community Development Agency (IHCDA) grant program called “CreatINg Places.” The local project was selected as the first grant recipients.
 
As of Monday morning, Nov. 21, $10,600 has been raised, project officials said.
