Neighborhood diversity, cohesion and need underscore upcoming greenspace

INDIANAPOLIS — (September 12, 2017) Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. (KIB) announces five new community greenspace projects awarded as part of KIB’s IPL Project GreenSpace program for 2018. KIB reviewed over 20 applications from active community groups wanting to transform vacant areas into useful places for their neighborhood and our city. Five applications were selected for 2018 GreenSpace projects.

In partnership with Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL) and the City of Indianapolis, KIB has helped neighborhoods, schools, churches, and other community-based organizations create pocket parks and other greenspaces since 1995. These spaces focus on connecting people to nature and creating a sense of place rooted in local identity.

The following organizations and spaces have been selected as 2018 project partners:

The new class of project partners will attend a kick-off orientation at KIB on Tuesday, September 26.

KIB would like to thank the City and community development and design professionals and KIB donors who assisted in project selection for 2018. The IPL Project GreenSpace program is made possible by the support of our title sponsor, Indianapolis Power & Light Company, as well as other generous supporters, including the City of Indianapolis.
