4:Activity Centers

Activity centers are those places with a concentration of economic activity and things to do. From downtown Indianapolis, cultural districts, smaller neighborhood centers, or even remote rural destinations, they often frame much of the Indy experience for residents and visitors alike. While the economics of what make each work differs, enhancing and sustaining these places and the businesses that call them home will have a positive impact on those experiences.
