There will be no meeting tomorrow for the SVBA.
However, there are several topics that we are working on for January.
1) Vince Shimp is planning a development in the 900 block of S. Meridian Street. Vince’s representative presented to our Dev. Comm. earlier this month. Stay tuned for more info. We may have this on the agenda in January.
2) The new City Administration seems to be warming up to us and is willing to meet with us in January. We are presenting a “Live, Work, and Play” development plan to them on Jan. 30th to see if they will implement a TIF district in our area. We will have a rough draft for you at the next meeting in January.
3) Jeff Miller, our City-County Councilman has asked us to weigh in on the digital billboard issue before the City. You can help decide the direction for digital signs in Indy. Here is the new Department of Metropolitan Development (DMD) survey where you can share your thoughts: www.surveymonkey.com/r/indysigns2.
Happy Holidays from your Stadium Village Board!!

Stadium Village gets some attention for the new developments happening in our area. Check out the coverage here–> http://www.wthr.com/article/new-marriott-hotel-to-be-built-across-from-lucas-oil-stadium
Look at the following articles highlighting the developments at the Brougher Building (former Wood High School) and introducing the new neighbors we have in our area:
In collaboration with Indianapolis Downtown Inc., and Cummins we will help plant and clean-up the neighborhood to help beautify it for the fall and to prepare it for Super Bowl XLVI here in Indianapolis. Cummins is providing the plants and a budget for watering up until the Super Bowl. None of this money comes out of our beautification budget. So, we ask that as many members as possible show up to help lend a hand and show support for what IDI and Cummins are doing for us. These days are fun and they go quickly with the right number of volunteers. So please come out on Oct. 28th from 1-4 pm. We will meet at Midwest Computer Associates at 850 S. Meridian St.
