9 The Monon Opportunity Area Brownfields Today Your Tomorrow

10 Asset Assessment Keep Existing Businesses - Go Green

11

12 Envision New Uses

13 Which Sites What Reuse? Identify challenges and opportunities: cost, ownership, future values How Expensive = Who s Our Partner

14 What priority at what cost? Ownership Can a CDC do it? Do we need EPA $$? Can we find a redeveloper?

15 Images are Powerful

16 Image Matters: Clean it and stencil it Small projects Good visibility Media attention Keep Our Neighborhood Beautiful: Keep Indianapolis Beautiful Community gardens schools Sunday school classes Redevelopment Partners to sponsor small projects and large: CDCs Churches City EPA Developers

17 Neighborhood Trends With Economic Impacts Population loss over past two decades Median income lower than City ($24,000 in 07) Unemployment est. at 18% New industrial site added (Keystone) Considerable housing infill and rehab Track record of partnerships

18 Economic Development Goals Based on What We ve Learned Increase job creation Capture more industrial development, particularly green industry More quality infill and redevelopment Greater small business and entrepreneurship support Increase graduation rates for K-12 More robust economic development tool kit

19 Potential Actions: 1. Increase Job Creation Match workforce training with real private and public jobs in the market Bring more workforce training into the neighborhood Green job training

20 Potential Actions: 2. Capture more industrial development Bring University Loft site into Keystone Industrial Park Relocate existing neighborhood industries there in addition to firms from elsewhere

21 Potential Actions: 3. More quality infill and redevelopment Develop alternative prototypes/proformas that bring reality to vision Offer public parcels for demonstration prototype development

22 Sustainable Mixed Use Development Adaptive Reuse Development Reality Means: Cost, Revenues, Tenants, & Financing

23 Potential Actions: 4. Greater support for small businesses and entrepreneurship Enhance micro loan programs and other funding (CDFI) Explore/adapt Cleveland, OH or Appleton, WI models for entrepreneurship assistance

24 Potential Actions: 5. Increase graduation rates for K-12 & add schools Expand mentoring programs Provide workforce internships for high school students Incorporate new school facilities into redevelopment strategy as population grows

25 Potential Actions: 6. More robust economic development tool kit Create area wide tax increment districts More aggressive use of federal development assistance programs like 221d4, NMTC Property tax freeze for historic and brownfield redevelopment (7 to 10 years) Further incorporate foundations

27 Neighborhood Transportation System Sustainable Connections

28 Existing Conditions System Assets: Traditional street grid (connectivity) Limited one-way streets Access to interstate I-70 and CSX railroad Multi-modal modes, i.e. transit, on-street bike route, sidewalks and Monon trail

29 Existing Conditions System Inefficiencies Inadequate traffic circulation Lack of street lighting Lack of street maintenance i.e. paving On-street parking Limited Interstate access Limited bus service, shelters and benches Poor sidewalk conditions Lack of crosswalks Limited pedestrian & greenway connections Poor bike route signage

30 Sidewalk Conditions

31 Existing Bus Transit & Greenways

32 Transportation Needs Reduce through traffic Resurface neighborhood streets On-street parking ordinance Improve streetscape i.e. landscaping, lighting etc. Sidewalk improvements Improve pedestrian & greenway connections Improve Interstate access Improve transit service and amenities i.e. shelters and benches Intersection of 30 th and the Monon (currently abandoned Hoosier factory)

33 Sustainable Transportation Connections Transportation Recommendations Short-term Capital Improvements Sidewalk rehab program Pavement maintenance Street lighting & landscape improvements Traffic signal optimization and crosswalk improvements Bus stop & shelter improvements Transit Marketing Bike route signage and on-street markings

34 Sustainable Transportation Connections Transportation Recommendations Long-term Transportation Improvements Interstate access road I 69 Improvements (HOVL) Comprehensive Transit Bus Operations Improvements Express bus and neighborhood circulator Transit vehicle maintenance facility Northeast Transit Corridor Fixed Guideway (LRT)

35 LAND USE & SUSTAINABILITY: What Makes a Healthy, Convenient, Green Neighborhood Location convenient to the region Key neighborhood components Green features & technology

36 Why Location Matters

37 You Have a Great One

38 Transit Is Decent But Should Be Better

39 Desirable Neighborhood Components Walkability Convenient shops & services Critical mass (the D word) Affordability, Mixed-income

40 Walkability: Why You re Better than the Suburbs, Part 2

41 Your Streets Are Connected

42 Shops & Amenities: Need to Improve

43 The Key Is Restored Density, Block by Block: Here s an Example Existing conditions 2009, NRDC

44 Sidewalks, street trees & lamps 2009, NRDC

45 Fill vacant lots in foreground 2009, NRDC

46 Fill another vacant lot & rebuild commercial at far end 2009, NRDC

47 Add modest landscaping to homes 2009, NRDC

48 More inviting neighborhood makes for good neighbors 2009, NRDC

49 Restoring a Block Before After 2009, NRDC

50 Green Infrastructure

51

52 Green Infrastructure as Implemented: Parking Lots 2009, NRDC Norman, OK; Portland, OR

53 Greener Roadways 2009, NRDC

54 Greener Sidewalks 2009, NRDC Indianapolis; Seattle

55 Green Roof Gardens

56 Greener Transit Lines 2009, NRDC San Francisco; Atlanta (rendering)
