Connecting Resources to Community-Based Planning
Join the Smart Growth Network as planners and community leaders from Indianapolis share the success story of the Smart Growth Redevelopment District, an area of the city that faced high concentrations of poverty, abandoned homes and brownfields.
Using an inclusive planning process, the neighborhoods of King Park and Martindale/Brightwood developed an action plan and worked more than a decade to implement it, generating $50 million of investment and development. The presentation will highlight the role of community development corporations in this process.
Date:Wednesday, September 29
Time: 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time
The webinar is the third in a six-part Smart Growth Network webinar series, Learning from (and Leaning on) Local Leaders to Revitalize African American Neighborhoods, with staff from U.S. EPA’s Brownfields/Land Revitalization program and Office of Community Revitalization.
