Are you decorating your home for the holidays? We want you on the Midtown Holiday Light Tour map! The Midtown Holiday Light Tour: Home for the Holidays presented by Bedel Financial will feature festively decorated exteriors of Midtown homes pinpointed on an interactive map on our website.
Residents of Indianapolis and beyond can use the map to safely explore Midtown's amazing neighborhoods and share the festive spirit of the season.
The Community Controlled Food Initiative (CCFI) is a cooperative started by community members that brings fresh affordable food to our community and supports local farmers like Lawrence Community Gardens, Elephant Gardens, Full Hand Farm, Johnnie Raber Farm and more.
CCFI food share orders are reserved on the 1st Saturday of every month and picked up on the 2nd Saturday of every month at North United Methodist Church from 3-5 p.m. For one bag of farm fresh food, you pay $20, or $15 for seniors, or $7.50 for SNAP/EBT participants.
The City of Indianapolis is still seeking public input and resident feedback on ideas for repurposing the underground connections to power that are available at former BlueIndy sites.
If you have not participated in the survey, please do so to provide your preferences and comments on how to repurpose these spots to best serve our neighborhoods! Property owners adjacent to former BlueIndy sites are being engaged to ensure they are aware of opportunities to provide their ideas and feedback.
If you are able, please consider a donation to Midtown Indy this Giving Tuesday. Despite the tremendous residential, commercial, and cultural assets of Midtown Indianapolis, there are real threats to its economic vitality and quality of life. Your donation will support our many programs aimed at the safety, walkability, sustainability and connectivity of our nearly century old community.
Please help us thank North United Methodist Church for their hard work cleaning up the long vacant former Sierra Flower shop. We know many neighbors were concerned about the shop and lot becoming an eyesore and we appreciate their efforts to clean up the property!
The Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) reminds Marion County residents that leaf collection service ends on Friday, December 4. Residents can place up to 40 bags of leaves out for pick up on their regular trash day through the end of this week. DPW's lead collection service is offered free for residents.
It's important to remember that open burning of leaves is prohibited to residents in Marion County. Try composting as an alternative to traditional raking and bagging.
As you round out your end of year holiday shopping, don't forget to shop local! There are tons of great local spots to support throughout Midtown, so be sure to drop by or order curbside pick-up at your favorite stores, or grab some giftcards to gift or use in the future.
