For those commercial property owners who want to improve the look of their facade (and beautify the neighborhood), there is grant money available to help out. Some of the members of the SVBA have taken advantage of this opportunity in the past. If interested look at the link below to find out details. This is time-sensitive because the application deadline is Jan. 9th.
The PUP seats went in this morning at both the Parish Hall Bus stop as well as the stop at the corner of S. Meridian and McCarty. They look great and help to further enhance the neighborhood by providing public art that is functional, sustainable, artistic and historic. The sign showing the SVBA’s sponsorship of the PUP seats is also prominently displayed. For more info about the PUP seat program you can visit this link
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.
