INDIANAPOLIS — The City-County Council passed $80 million in neighborhood-level investments in infrastructure, public safety, and quality of life.

Those investments will include $3 million for tearing down some buildings at the long-time nuisance property of Towne and Terrace.

“With this new funding, the City can improve roads and pedestrian infrastructure, invest in new and better facilities for our public safety professionals, and address nuisance issues such as blighted buildings – some of the top priorities of our neighborhoods,” said Mayor Joe Hogsett.
