From UHNA Secretary Jim Pennell....
Hi Neighbors,
Our second Keep Indianapolis Beautiful/University Heights Neighborhood
Association tree planting is planned for Saturday, May 14th, from
8:45AM until about Noon. We really need volunteers to help, since we
are going to plant 41 trees this time -- 10 more than we planted last year!
Please contact Jim Pennell by telephone at 782-2543, or by email at
jpennell@uindy.edu, to volunteer.

Dear Neighbor,
You will soon see some orange Public Hearing signs going up in the neighborhood alerting you to potential changes in zoning. I wanted to tell you about the plans before the signs went up so we could talk about them if you had questions or concerns. We have put together a plan that we hope will ease the on-street parking pressure and improve the flow of traffic and safety in the neighborhood. I have included a drawing to make it a little easier to know what might happen.
As you know, our enrollment has grown over the years, so we need more residence hall space.

University Heights neighbors, There have been many discussions about what to do with the vacant lot where the Cummins Apts. once stood (corner of Mathews and Edwards). The attached drawing is a culmination of ideas that will help beautify the area and increase green space that will be usable for residents and students. The layout is the work of Jeff Mader, landscape architect who owns Mader Design. This final drawing includes input from neighborhood residents at our November 2010 meeting, as well as UIndy faculty and staff. The next step is to identify ways to fund the elements incorporated into the design. We will send more information as it becomes available but wanted you to be aware of the improvements that are planned.
Take care, Nancy
