Net Literacy will build our website--something that the co-coordinators of the IT Crime Watch have yet to find the time or talent to accomplish. Yesterday we spoke to a room full of high-schoolers who asked insightful questions about what our neighborhood wants out of a website. We told them we want it to appeal to both current and potential residents. We want to be able to point realtors to tangible evidence that this is a great place to live.
Keep Indianapolis Beautiful held a grant workshop for the NeighborWoods tree-planting project that we think might work along Washington Street. Aside from potentially calming the traffic, we see the trees as a possible "screen" to block the passing motorists' view of the hookers on the sidewalk (assuming enterprising prostitutes don't use the trees for pole dancing).
We'd like to hear from Irvington Terrace residents. We need your ideas for the website and we want to hear your vision for our neighborhood. Take a look at the Keep Indianapolis Beautiful website and let us know what you'd like to see on your street. Do you know of other initiatives that we can leverage? Post them here!
