Better Block Indy: Michigan Road

A vision for our neighborhood come to life for one day!

What is Better Block: Michigan Rd?

Saturday, September 21st, the Crooked Creek community along Michigan Road will be transformed into a thriving, connected neighborhood center. Join us from 2-7pm and show the city of Indianapolis the potential of Michigan Road!

Residents, volunteers, artists, businesses, faith and neighborhood organizations will create a vision of what could be: pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined sidewalks, enhanced transit stops, outdoor dining, public seating, public art, and a mix of small commercial storefronts and businesses – even a protected cycle track.

The project is brought to you by Crooked Creek Community Development Corporation where our focus is to improve the quality of life in Northwest Indianapolis. This event will give residents an opportunity to shape the area as they imagine it – if only for a Saturday. It will bring to life the best hopes for the Michigan Road corridor to become the economic and civic heart of the neighborhood.

The hope for this sort of project is that it will eventually become permanent. “Better Block” events act as a living charrette so that communities can actively engage in the buildout process and provide feedback in real time.
