The 2000 census reported the population of Fishers at almost 38,000. With the town’s affordable homes, growing economy, and proximity to the booming city of Indianapolis and Interstate 69 the growth in Fishers was tremendous. In 2003 the town of Fishers requested a special census from the U.S. Census Bureau to accurately measure the rapid population growth since 2000. This census would put the town’s population at 52,390, which is a 38 percent increase from the 2000 census. Since then much of the government’s resources have been devoted to building parks, maintaining roads, and managing the rapid growth of the town.
