People’s Planning Academy: 200 Years of Planning
Learn how city planning guides Indy's growth and change
People’s Planning Academy: 200 Years of Planning is a training to demystify city planning in Indianapolis and equip neighbors with tools to shape the future of their communities. The training will examine how history has shaped the built environment. By studying past choices, we can make better decisions for tomorrow and create a more inclusive, equitable, and just future.
