5A: Support Neighborhood Residential and Commercial Development
Support planning for and investments in neighborhoods, beyond cultural districts, in order to allow them to remain distinctive and competitive. This may include diverse housing types, smaller neighborhood-serving commercial centers, walkable infrastructure and high quality public spaces, parks, and streetscapes. Such work should involve resident engagement that is representative of the whole neighborhood.
Value to the CommunityStrong and vibrant neighborhoods define quality of life for residents. Investments that help them remain distinctive allow Indy to have neighborhoods for every preference from downtown high-rise to rural estate. Mixes of housing types and uses permit a neighborhood to accommodate people through life stages, improve connections and social capital among neighbors, and reduce the need to travel far to meet daily needs.
Value to the Hospitality IndustryOutside of the traditional cultural districts most often visited by visitors, efforts to promote neighborhood stabilization and redevelopment will sustain population densities that help support local businesses while increasing the breadth of unique experiences. While predominantly local-serving, these neighborhoods contribute to resident pride and the identity of our city, and in many ways serve as incubators for local flavor.
