IPL Project GreenSpace Recipients Selected for Transformation in 2019 by Keep Indianapolis Beautiful
Neighborhood diversity, building community, and need underscore upcoming greenspace


INDIANAPOLIS — (September 25, 2018) Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. (KIB) announces three new community greenspace projects awarded as part of KIB’s IPL Project GreenSpace program for 2019. KIB reviewed over 11 applications from active community groups wanting to transform vacant areas into useful places for their neighborhood and our city. Three applications were selected for 2019 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 attended a kick-off orientation at KIB on Wednesday, September 19 and will begin the design process for their spaces on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at the KIB offices (1029 E. Fletcher Ave.).
KIB would like to thank the City and community development and design professionals and KIB donors who assisted in project selection for 2019. 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.
