Archbishop Noll Parkway Opens
August 1, 2018
Community leaders assembled at the Our Sunday Visitor Corporation
on July 31, 2018, to celebrate the completion of a $1.7 million investment in the City gateway corridor now officially known as the Archbishop Noll Memorial Parkway.
"The Huntington County Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors offers its thanks and congratulations to the City for the completion of the project," said Mark Wickersham, executive director. "Not only is this a great thing for local residents who use the Parkway and its new multi-use trail on a daily basis, it demonstrates the City's vision and appreciation for the fact that this corridor has been and continues to be a gateway to our downtown. Every on-line routing system in the computer world directs traffic from the northeast into our downtown using this street. It's needed reconstruction for years and with the help of the State's Community Crossings Program, and the leadership of the local government, it looks great," Wickersham remarked. "It is so much easier to have success in economic development programming in communities who are willing to invest in themselves," Wickersham concluded.
Kyle Hamilton, CEO of Our Sunday Visitor, offered remarks to the assembled crowd. Hamilton also serves as the 2018 President of the Board of Directors for the Huntington County Economic Development Corporation. Archbishop John Francis Noll, for whom the Parkway is now named, was the founder of the Our Sunday Visitor Company in Huntington and devoted his life to serving God and the community.
