BTNA wanted to share an update on a potential grant that could benefit the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood. The City of Indianapolis, working through LISC (Local Initiatives Support Corporation), is identifying two neighborhoods for a financial investment and infusion of professional services and expertise. The grant initiative is called Great Places 2020.
Great Places 2020, according to the Request for Letters of Intent issued last month, “is a visionary community development project to transform strategic places in Marion County neighborhoods into dynamic centers of culture, commerce and community, preparing Indianapolis for unprecedented success as its reaches its Bicentennial. Philanthropic, civic and private partners will engage with neighborhoods to make significant social and capital investments to enhance quality of life and spur private investment.”
A group of midtown organizations came together recently and selected 38th & Illinois as a “Great Place” — and Great Places 2020 has chosen us as a finalist!
Potential grant funds and assistance would be utilized on both the north side and south side of 38th St. The target area is 1⁄4 mile in each direction around the 38th & Illinois intersection. Midtown Indianapolis, Inc. became the lead group and many local neighborhood groups, CDCs and anchor institutions have signed on to support.
Our second-round presentation will be held next Wednesday, August 27th between 10 and 11 a.m. at the area surrounding Tarkington Park. The selection committee consists of 37 community leaders. They will arrive at our site (38th and Illinois) and we will have exactly 15 minutes to present.
This is where you, our neighbors come in…we have signs for people to hold that will list the names of the surrounding neighborhoods, institutions, businesses, and organizations that support our endeavors. This is such a wonderful opportunity for us to show the selection committee our unified vision for an important central node in Midtown!
We are looking for community volunteers to join us in supporting this once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of the change that is starting to occur at 38th and Illinois. We’d ask you as neighbors to please consider taking an hour out of your morning next Wednesday the 27th to support this effort in our neighborhood! If you are interested, please meet us at Tarkington Park at 10 a.m.
In the meantime, we encourage everyone to tweet/facebook/social media of choice the hashtag #LOVEat38th to share memories or visions for the future of the node. L.O.V.E. is an acronym that represents the four main points of our presentation: Livability, Opportunity, Vitality, and Education.
Our next BTNA meeting will be held on Monday, August 11th @ 6:30pm at the MLK Community Center (40th & Illinois). We hope to see you there!
