Representatives from the B & O Trail Association and Speedway shared a canopy tent and talked to neighbors about plans for the trail and the timing for construction. They had maps available and were very happy to join our event, especially with the close proximity that our property has to the trail. Although the full implementation is still probably two years away, the excitement is building to see the connectivity this project will bring to neighbors.
Eighteen community partner organizations had an informational booth at the August 27, 2022 Community Connection Event. Here are a couple of comments we received from community organizations who participated:
“We had a little over 100 people come to our booth that day. I had lots of fun meeting with you and the community. Hope to do it again next year if we have it again.”
“Thank you for inviting IMPD NW District to your event. It was well thought out, having food and water available was a great touch. Also, thank you for having a tent set up for us, it was really nice having that on a sunny day. Keep up the good work. Feel free to reach out anytime.”
“What makes the West Side the best side?” was a question we asked of the neighbors who attended the Community Connection Event on Saturday August 27, 2022. We offered games for kids, free food and fun activities for adults as well. Our intention was to listen to the hopes and dreams of neighbors in the Ben Davis / Chapel Rock area and begin to discern how we might collaborate together to make the West Side even more life-giving and a desirable place to live. We did meet some of our area neighbors and began some conversations that we hope will blossom and grow in the near future.
