May 10th was a big night for Midtown as more than 500 people flocked to James Whitcomb Riley School 43 for the Great Places 2020 Neighborhood Plans Unveiling. Plans for Maple Crossing, the area surrounding the intersection of 38th and Illinois, were shared with the audience and an $84 million funding commitment was announced, with $50 million of that total coming from LISC. That promise of support, paired with 3D models and virtual tours of the neighborhoods, helped the plans for the areas come to life for both residents and community partners.
