Complete Streets for Indianapolis
Indianapolis' Complete Streets ordinance (Proposal 208) passed with a unanimous vote of the Indianapolis-Marion County City-County Council on August 13, 2012; Mayor Ballard signed the proposal into law on August 23. You can read more about our advocacy effort on the National Complete Streets Coalition Blog and the INDYCOG site. We are thankful for the leadership and support of dozens of partner organizations, our champions on the Council, Indianapolis media and the public-at-large!
