Hello UIndy Community!

It's that time of year again for the Great Indy Cleanup! I know many participated last year, and the Community Programs Center, along with Campus Program Board, would like to extend that opportunity to you again.

The Great Indy Cleanup will take place on Saturday April 4th, 2009. Registration starts at 9 am by UIndy Hall, with the service projects lasting from 9:30 am until noon. These projects range from picking up trash at UIndy and the surrounding community, as well as the Hannah House and University Heights church and preschool. The hours of service accumulated can be added to students' transcripts.

Lunch and t-shirts will be provided to all who participate.

Registration is currently taking place! There are green forms available in SC 209 (Student Affairs Office). However, if you would like us to send you an electronic copy of the form, please e-mail us a response. Registration can be by individual or teams.

Also, we are looking for Group Leaders for each of the projects during this event. The Group Leaders would be responsible for taking a group to an area assigned to them. We would love for faculty to participate as Group Leaders. If any faculty members are interested, please have them respond to me for more details.

This will be an exciting event, and we hope many of your will want to take part!

Thank you for your time!!!!

The City of Indianapolis website has some new features on it. I was pleased to find some specific improvements with some new information that you might want to refer to periodically, namely for scheduled chuckhole repairs. is where you can access the scheduled repairs. DPW restructured last year into planned and unplanned repairs. This allowed them to initiate scheduled maintenance, which as any good car owner knows is key to maintaining things properly. This link is for the crews doing the preventive maintenance for known stretches of bad road. Unplanned repairs are not listed here, as they are by definition unplanned. That is in response to your emails and calls.

Please use the new link to report potholes directly 24 hours a day at

While this is a funny name, it works wonders for entering your chuckholes that need fixed. You can enter them yourself at whatever time of the day or night you happen to think of it and have time. 24 hours. And it goes DIRECTLY into the software to get it fixed. The weather is cooperating better now, but the two day repair time we were down to is now up again, but expect all repairs to be completed in ten days is what we are being told. A street address is important to enter this into the software so please write down a close address.
