Englewood CDC serves as the lead neighborhood partner for economic development and job creation related to Englewood Great Places 2020 area, and the IndyEast Promise Zone. Additionally, Englewood CDC serves as the lead for the East Washington Street Partnership:
The East Washington Street Partnership is a collaborative effort to foster sustainable economic development and revitalization along one of Indianapolis most important urban corridors. Partnership efforts are guided by the East Washington Street Vision Plan. The Vision Plan seeks to partner economic revitalization with neighborhood revitalization in a manner that brings residents and jobs back, improves property values and tax base, improves ecological quality, and promotes the transformation of a struggling, degraded corridor into a vibrant, mixed-use urban address. Through short and long term development sites, the goals of the plan are to bring back jobs for the community and to support a long-term policy vision of re-introducing rail transit along the corridor.
Focusing on creating and supporting opportunities for local business initiatives to thrive and prosper in our neighborhood.
