Big Car will be hosting a Jane Jacobs walk from Garfield Park to UIndy via the Shelby Street Corridor.  The walk is intended to explore ways in which the university and neighborhoods can be better connected via commercial development, walking, and biking.

The walk will take place on May 7th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm.  No registration is necessary and the event is open to any community member or community stakeholder.

Last Saturday morning was crisp and sunny, a perfect day for manual labor and getting your hands dirty.  University Heights neighbors and KIB employees showed up a little early to enjoy coffee and doughnuts provided by UIndy's David Wantz.  Right on time, a hoard of UIndy students came marching down Matthews Ave. to assist neighbors and KIB in spreading mulch, picking up trash, building planting boxes, and planting trees.  Saturday was phase one of an ambitious transformation of the the old Cummins Student Apartment lot.
