STAFF SPOTLIGHT: Steve Cunningham
Growing up in Indianapolis, Steve and his siblings had what he considers a “typical Midwestern small city childhood”. Always interested in big cities like New York and Chicago—and their transportation systems—he found summer work as a draftsman, drawing plat maps for development projects. Steve now serves as the Principal Planner of the Programming section here at the MPO. To learn more about Steve, click here.
MPO offices are located in the Indianapolis City-County Building, which has been closed until further notice due to COVID-19. However, we are all working remotely and continue with our normal activities.

Thank you,
Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization
