Placemaking in Indy

Ken Benfiled, writing 'The coolest urban trail you are likely to see' in his blog:

Something special is happening in Indianapolis, and it’s transforming neighborhoods. As I wrote in People Habitat, revitalization when done well is almost unparalleled in its ability to boost the “triple bottom line” of sustainability: a healthy environment, a healthy economy, and a healthy and equitable social fabric. The good news, of course, is that, after decades of varying degrees of disinvestment, downtowns and inner cities are coming back, albeit at different paces in different markets and sometimes in new forms that differ from the old.

Redevelopment is a natural part of development. Rejoice for those around you who transform our places into the beautiful.
