The Northeast Corridor includes the diverse areas of King Park, Martindale Brightwood, Millersville at Fall Creek Valley, and United Northeast. It encompasses 14 neighborhood associations and boasts of the natural beauty of Fall Creek, the connectivity of the Monon Trail, and the State Fairgrounds as an anchor institution.
Residents, business owners, organizations, and leaders of the city’s Northeast Corridor have been working to create a quality-of-life plan — a shared vision of better communities and neighborhoods in the area– and their work is a critical component of the area’s largest and most comprehensive planning effort to date. The purpose of the plan is for community members to identify and prioritize commonly shared issues that impact quality of life in their neighborhoods. Issues include youth engagement, connectivity, housing, safety, health, education, business growth, and jobs. The result will be a community directed and approved quality-of-life plan that will be implemented over the next 3 to 5 years.
The planning process is being convened by the King Park Area Development Corporation along with 21 significant partners, including:
- The United Northeast Community Development Corporation
- Martindale-Brightwood Community Development Corporation
- Edna Martin Christian Center
- Urban Mission YMCA
- Habitat for Humanity
