Great Places 2020 Survey
Starting in 2015, residents from the Maple Crossing Community came together to develop a plan as part of the Great Places 2020 Initiative.  After several public input sessions, committees were  formed in response to the identified needs and were tasked with providing leadership around identified goals. An Education Committee, comprised of community leaders, neighbors, and partners, was tasked with addressing goals which revolve around providing comprehensive education opportunities for all ages.
 
In order to guide the efforts of the Education Committee, its members are seeking input from community members on the identified goals and areas where the committee should prioritize their work. Please take a moment to share your thoughts and insights by completing a quick survey using the link below.

Partner Profile | Broad Ripple State Farm


A word from Elizabeth Marshall:

When I interviewed for the Midtown location of my State Farm office I was asked 'What is your second choice of location,' and I was able to state with confidence that this was the only location I was interested in - I wanted to be able to live the 'Good Neighbor' model for my business and my community.   My husband Kevin and I live in Midtown and our son is in 2nd grade at IPS 84. We love the neighborhood and can't imagine living anywhere else! 

My office will celebrate 12 years on January 1, 2018. My team and I love to be a local presence for a reputable brand and we enjoy helping customers navigate the insurance process. We work with our customers on auto, home, life, and disability insurance. We are open later in the evenings on Saturdays to be available when customers need us most. We would love for you to visit our website for a quote at www.insurance4indy.com so that you may also see how great it is to have a Good Neighbor agent!
Thank you to our Midtown Investors:
