Historic preservation groups are fighting to save a 1914 church at the northeast corner of Washington Street and German Church
Road in Cumberland. The congregation of St. John United Church of Christ has been working on plans to build a new church on
Carroll Road and struck a deal to sell the old one to a developer. The plans are rumored to include demolition
to make way for a CVS store.
A stretch of 16th Street could see new life as the Indianapolis Housing Agency plans to redevelop a troubled low-income housing project and Kroger revives efforts to acquire land and plan a new supermarket to replace a cramped, old-format location.
