East Washington and Oxford Streets in the Englewood neighborhood is the center of one Indianapolis neighborhoods designated a Great Places 2020 area. The 1/4 mile radius around this center is envisioned as the site of a vibrant, welcoming, walkable neighborhood.
Great Places 2020 is a collective impact effort to transform strategic Indianapolis neighborhoods into walkable town centers of culture, commerce, and community in conjunction with Indianapolis’s bicentennial in 2020. Three Indianapolis neighborhoods have been identified as these target areas. Investments in Livability, Opportunity, Vitality, and Education build on existing neighborhood momentum with a vision for vibrant, mixed-use neighborhoods welcoming residents and visitors alike.
