Indianapolis launches “Plan 2020”

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – City leaders are taking residents ideas to make Indianapolis a better city.

Mayor Greg Ballard and members of the Plan 2020 initiative recently began taking public input for how to improve Indianapolis

“We want them to help us visualize what kind of city they want in 2020 and beyond,” said Mayor Ballard.

The city, along with the Greater Indianapolis Progress Committee and the Department of Metropolitan Development want to know, from residents, how Indy can be a better place to live, work and visit. The initiative comes as the city gets ready to celebrate its Bicentennial.

“The city has a history where the private sector, government the general public have always kind of had a conversation, and plan 2020 will be no different,” said Adam Thies, Director of the Department of Metropolitan Development

The initiative is broken up into 5 committees: Choose Indy, Connect Indy, Love Indy, Serve Indy, and Work Indy. Each committe has its own goal, but they are all working, along with you to make Indianapolis better.

“Implementation is key, we don’t want a plan that sits on a shelf we want people to tell us what kind of city they see into the future and we want to move in that direction if there’s a general consensus,” said Mayor Ballard
