BUILDING A GREAT CITY STARTS
WITH GREAT PLACES
Walkability. Public art. Vibrant commercial and community activity. These are some of the many calling cards of great places in great cities. Great Places 2020 is a visionary community development project to transform strategic places in Marion County neighborhoods into dynamic centers of culture, commerce and community. As philanthropic, civic and private partners look toward Indianapolis’ Bicentennial, they are engaging neighborhoods to make significant social and capital investments to enhance their quality of life and spur private investment.
Great Places 2020 is a collective impact approach led by six implementation partners that will launch these ideas in three places —Englewood Village; Maple Crossing; and River West. The initial phase will provide the foundation for six years of Great Places implementation, with the intention of expanding to additional places in the coming years.
