Velocity Strategic Plan for Downtown Indianapolis Introduced to Community Leaders and Downtown Residents

On December 3rd, Indianapolis Downtown Inc (IDI)  introduced its 5-year strategic plan, called “Velocity,” for Downtown to Community Leaders and Downtown Residents.

From April to June, Velocity collected more than 4000 surveys from those who live, work and play in Indianapolis. These surveys allowed participants a chance to voice their suggestions to prioritize improvements in six areas: transportation, neighborhoods, arts and culture, livability, public spaces and economic development. 

During the Summer residents from neighborhoods near downtown were encouraged to attend one of several 90-minute Neighborhood roundtable meetings to learn more about the planning initiative and to discuss priorities for downtown. Participants helped to shape a refreshed vision, framework and action plan to guide future improvements and focus investments in Downtown Indianapolis for the next several years.
