Life Is Good at The Fort. Since the closure of Fort Benjamin Harrison army base in 1995, redevelopment of the Fort has taken hold in a major way. The City of Lawrence and the Fort Harrison Reuse Authority (FHRA), have worked together to redevelop the Fort into a mixed-use village town center. Located just nine miles from downtown Indianapolis, historic Fort Harrison sits atop a scenic campus overlooking a 1700 acre state park (boasting a championship caliber Pete Dye golf course) and offers renovated historic homes formerly occupied by officers and generals, new residential communities and senior living apartments, a continued military presence with more than 4000 employees strong at the Defense Finance and Accounting Services Center and a home to City of Lawrence offices and Greater Lawrence Chamber of Commerce. The FHRA is currently seeking a full-time Executive Director to lead its economic development initiatives and serve as an advocate for further investment and development projects consistent with strategic goals and impact on the community. The Executive Director will work with the FHRA Board of Directors and key business partners to foster growth through business attraction, retention and expansion programs that result in the creation of jobs and capital investment. This individual has direct oversight of the Director of Operations. Total annual operational budget is $4 million. Please respond by November 28. FMI and to apply:

125 West Market Street, Suite 300, Indianapolis, IN 46204
