Below is a press Release from Indy Rezone soliciting input from residents. A number of us from Urban Indy have attended these meetings, and they are very worthwhile. Remember, this is our city, and you have a voice.
INDIANAPOLIS â€“ Have you ever wondered why some neighborhoods are better at attracting residents and businesses than others?Â Â Are there changes that we should make today that would improve the connections between neighborhoods and the places where people work and shop?Â How should the City balance the need for economic development and job creation with drinking water protection, stormwater management and flood protection?Â Zoning and development regulations impact your world every day; the Indy Rezone team needs your input about how we should change! Share whatâ€™s working and what is not and any ideas, suggestions or comments about how Indy should development in the future of finite resources.
Join your neighbors, employers, city officials, and technical experts at the first set of public listening sessions.Â After a brief introduction to the project, we will ask for your input on a series of questions meant to foster meaningful dialogue between residents, business owners, community leaders and decision makers about how to make Indianapolis more sustainable, livable and adaptable.
