Listen to our community

Many neighborhoods across Indianapolis have created quality of life plans that identify the priorities for their communities. The best of community engagement starts by understanding the community's goals. 

Citywide and regional organizations have also created strategic plans that can inform partnerships and engagement opportunities.
