Neighborhoods are where urban redevelopment touches the lives of a city’s citizens.  Traditional neighborhoods are walkable, compact, and contain multi-use commercial nodes.  We’ll report on familiar places, as well as lesser-known areas that are deserving of reinvestment.

  • Kevin: I have followed your blog for some time now and think you do a great job covering local urban design issues. I also enjoy reading your coverage of REA’s projects – the Cultural Trail, 62nd Street Trail, the Bloch Cancer Survivors Park, ….

    I wanted to give you an “anonymous” tip on one of our projects but dont want to be quoted…. Recently we have been working with Indy Parks, Midtown, Meridian Kessler and Butler Tarkington Neighborhoods, and other stakeholders to craft a vision for Tarkington Park located between Meridian and Illinois, 39th and 40th Streets. The concepts we have developed have been received well by the City, neighborhoods, and stakeholders. I thought you all might be interested in covering it as I think we may be building some momentum. Go to for more info. Hope you find something of interest… Thanks and keep up the good work!
