Officials from the Great Places 2020 program in Indianapolis will Thursday unveil the strategic plans for the two newest neighborhoods targeted for revitalization. The event will also debut the new branding identities for the Twin Aire and King Commons areas.
The two neighborhoods were added to the Great Places program in 2016. The program aims to help specific areas in Marion County combat challenges such as population loss, high unemployment and poverty rates, low graduation rates, and high levels of pollution through urban revitalization.
The Twin Aire neighborhood covers a quarter-mile area surrounding the intersection of English and Southeastern Avenues. The King Commons neighborhood covers a quarter-mile area surrounding 25th and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. streets.
Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett will be on hand for the unveiling, along with representatives from both neighborhoods, Local Initiatives Support Corp. of Indianapolis, Keep Indianapolis Beautiful and Indy Parks.
