The Power of the Petal

Urban Bloom

Urban Bloom is a program that focuses on making the neighborhood look beautiful through Tactical Urbanism – also known as DIY Urbanism, Planning-by-Doing, Urban Acupuncture, and Urban Prototyping. This refers to a city, organizational, or citizen-led approach to neighborhood building using short-term, low-cost, and scalable interventions to catalyze long-term change.

The Enclave at Rader and Udell Streets

Our Vision

Community gardens will flourish with homegrown, accessible vegetables. Artwork will be displayed through recycled mediums, such as shipping containers, water barrels, and bicycles, representing the rich diversity and beauty in the Northwest Landing Neighborhood.

Blight to Light Project

The Blight to Light project started in November 2023 thanks to a grant gifted by the Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF), Mayor Joe Hogsett, and the Indianapolis Foundation. Through the Elevation Grant, we will transform our four neighboring alleyways into safer, cleaner, and more practical pathways for all to enjoy. 

Teams of residents, artists, students, and design professionals have developed plans to install lighting, fencing, and artwork in each alleyway. The project will be completed by May 2024.
