About CollegeAvenueIndy.org

Simply stated. We are concerned citizens living in neighborhoods on or near College Avenue. We recognize that the nature and charm of the neighborhood that attracted us to live in this community will be affected by City-led plans and development brought about through concerted maneuvering among public, quasi-public and neighborhood organizations to re-develop College Avenue. We question whether there is the public mandate that they assert. Our causes for concern:


  • A proposal by TWG, strongly advocated for by community leadership, to build an overly dense project with insufficient parking, blatantly defying a known land covenant, and out of character with the surrounding neighborhood.

  • The proposed Red-Line Bus line which has the potential of closing local businesses, pushing more traffic into the neighborhoods, and lacks sufficient demand to warrant the investment.

Please review our site, research the issues and become informed. These processes have not been self-vetting and it is incumbent upon our us and our neighbors to advocate for the type of community we want to have. 

At present it is being actively re-designed "for" us.....
 

 
WE STRIVE TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE EXTENT AND LONG-TERM IMPACT OF THE PENDING CHANGES.
 
To be clear...
 
We are NOT anti-development. We are seeking a greater voice in the vision proposed for our neighborhood by regional, city and neighborhood groups operating with tacit or inferred approval from an uninformed public.
