Live Indy East
We promise to create an economically diverse community by promoting housing redevelopment that embraces existing and new residents. We aim to accomplish this by recapturing vacant housing and developing new and affordable options.
Affordable Housing & Redevelopment
Existing Homeowners & Renters
Decrease transiency rate and resident turnover by addressing barriers to decent, safe, and affordable housing of existing renters and homeowners. Deferred maintenance, vacant and blighted properties, and problem rentals undermine community vitality and stability.
New Neighbor Cultivation
Increase homeownership, density & home values and lower vacancy rate, by creating diverse housing opportunities for new neighbors. A high percentage of vacant and blighted residential properties compel new housing and infill development opportunities.
Multi-Family Housing Opportunities
Increase the population density and level of specialty housing by developing multi-family housing options for families and individuals across the economic spectrum. This will in turn fuel other economic development.
