We want to build on the momentum of the Legacy Project to create a lasting legacy ofpositive change throughout urban Indianapolis — to restore housing, champion education, beautify our community, reduce crime, create avenues out of poverty and so much more. We want to engage community leaders, organizations, and residents in conversations about the issues affecting our core neighborhoods. What will it take to make them great? More importantly, what will it take to get people to stay in their urban neighborhoods, and what will it take to get them back?
With the support of our corporate and philanthropic partners listed below, we’re offering What’s Next for Neighborhoods: A Public Conversation Series that consists of three events designed to engage conversation. Leaders in community development will discuss issues and answer questions from the audience about how to tackle these challenges and ensure the future vibrancy of our downtown neighborhoods. Our first conversation was held April 20 — Planning and Sustaining Urban Neighborhoods — and addressed why our urban neighborhoods are important and how we can make them better. It attracted more than 200 participants.
5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Presented by the Metropolitan Indianapolis Board of Realtors (MIBOR) and Indianapolis Power and Light
