Our goals

For the past 10 years, IndyEast residents, major institutions
and community partners have worked together to create a new story for our neighborhood. We have moved our community forward according to the ambitious, resident-created Quality of Life Plan. We are strong, organized and uniquely prepared to grow our neighborhood over the next decade.

Together and with commitments from all levels of the City of Indianapolis, we are ready to invest the time, efforts and resources to fulfill our goals.
