Will “Whole Foods” Get TIF? (No) Does TIF raise my taxes? (No) Who gets the money? (Depends) Where does the money come from? How much money is there? Does the Midtown TIF take money from the schools? What is the Midtown Economic Council? How is TIF going to help my neighborhood?
We invite you to join us for answers to these questions and many more. Also learn how Midtown neighborhoods are using TIF to spur new development and to reverse decades of disinvestment in key areas. Meet the Midtown Economic Council members and learn how the MEC will work with City leaders to ensure the TIF investments meet the goals of Midtown neighborhoods.
Indianapolis has officially announced that Trick or Treating will now be held on Friday, November 1st due to severe weather.
The City of Indianapolis, Department of Public Works just issued the following statement to the Louisville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers:
In recognition of the public concerns with the options presented by the Corp of Engineers Final Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS), the Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW), in conjunction with Citizens Energy Group, has initiated an analysis of the “canal west bank” option. Based on preliminary findings, DPW has asked the Corp of Engineers to further study this option as a possible federal alternative for the flood damage reduction project. Additionally, DPW has officially requested that the Corp delay issuing a Record of Decision (ROD) indefinitely to allow for further discussion on the potential canal west bank option (which includes an indefinite extension of the comment period).
This request is currently under consideration by the USACE.
Technically the deadline for public comment is still TOMORROW, Thursday, October 31st! As such we’d encourage all neighbors to continue sending your personal opinions on the FSEIS to the USACE by emailing or reach out to City of Indianapolis – Mayor Greg Ballard‘s Chief of Staff .
