Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 27th and join us for the third annual Midtown Momentum Luncheon: An Afternoon for Park!
This year's luncheon will bring together community partners, businesses, and anchor institutions for an afternoon in celebration of one of Indy's most innovative urban parks.
This year's event will be held at the IMA's Deer Zink Pavilion and all proceeds will be dedicated to supporting programming, maintenance, and operations of Tarkington Park.
Networking will begin at 11 a.m., followed by the program at 11:30 a.m.
After the luncheon, the IMA has generously offered an optional tour of the Audubon Exhibit.
This has been a sold-out event for the past two years. Help us make this luncheon just as successful and RSVP today!

We had a great turnout at the June 22nd Land Use and Zoning Changes Public Open House! Residents filled up the seats for both presentations and were able to ask questions about the proposed zoning changes and share their opinions on the project.
The original Public Hearing was Thursday, June 29th, but that date has now been rescheduled for either the first or second full week in July.
The members of the Midtown Anchor Coalition are partnering with the Indy Chamber to incentivize people to stay or remain in Midtown Indianapolis via a new community development program. The anchor housing program gives employees from Butler University, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, The Christian Theological Seminary and The International School of Indiana financial assistance to purchase a home in a designated geography located in Midtown Indianapolis.
The Crown Hill Heritage Foundation is participating, too – and their program is open to two members of the public. Crown Hill Heritage Foundation’s anchor housing program offers down payment assistance to people interested in buying a home near southern Butler-Tarkington and portions of four historic Midtown neighborhoods that intersect at Maple Crossing (38th and Illinois streets). The Crown Hill Heritage Foundation’s public program will launch at 8 a.m. on Monday, May 15th. People interested in the program must apply at inhp.org/crownhill. The program is first-come, first-served, and income and eligibility restrictions apply.
"Great strides have been made during 2016 to fulfill the premise and the promuse of the Midtown Future Plan to foster collective impact and mutual benefit. By balancing the needs of businesses, residents, institutions, and City leaders, the community has successfully found common ground and moved projects forward. And all are moving on postive, community-wide paths that truly benefit everyone, whether it is through the tax base or improved neighborhood services or better connectity or more publicly available greenspace."
