What’s Next for Neighborhoods?

According to a recent article in The Indianapolis Star, Marion County lost a net 86,000 residents to its suburbs from 2000 to 2009. That means $180 million in total income now resides in the seven surrounding counties. What exactly does this mean and why should we care? Why are downtown neighborhoods important to Indianapolis’ survival?

On Monday, April 30, a panel of experts will tackle these questions and more. The esteemed panel includes Joe Bowling, Ron GiffordDavid HarrisMaggie Lewis and Mark Miles. Erika Smith, a columnist for The Indianapolis Star, will moderate.
