Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indy Connect, Central Indiana’s transportation initiative, will hold its first public forum at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Englewood Christian Church on North Rural Street on the east side of Indianapolis.

Citizens attending the meeting will have the opportunity to speak with transportation officials about the proposed regional plan that would raise taxes to build a light-rail line, improve bus service, and expand roadways and bike paths.

Indy Connect is a collaborative effort between the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization, IndyGo and Central Indiana Regional Transportation Authority.

The groups will hold nearly 30 public meetings throughout central Indiana through the end of March to gather input on the proposed plan. Feedback and suggestions will be incorporated into a revised plan late this year that will be presented to the public for further consideration.

Other meetings this week are at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Fishers Town Hall, and at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Arthur M. Glick Jewish Community Center on Hoover Road in Indianapolis.

Two more are set for Saturday: 11:30 a.m. at Plainfield Public Library and 3 p.m. at Greenwood Public Library.
