Mayor Joe Hogsett announces Neighborhood of the Month for November - Old Southside to be highlighted

INDIANAPOLIS – Mayor Joe Hogsett announced this week that Old Southside will be the city’s ‘Neighborhood of the Month’ for November 2018. The ‘Neighborhood of the Month’ program highlights Indianapolis neighborhood initiatives, works to engage community groups and promotes projects by City departments.

Located east of the White River and just south of downtown, this neighborhood is highlighted as the beginning foundation of what is now Indianapolis. As the city began to take shape in the 1800s, this area become home to a diverse group of immigrants. By 1890, this community was densely populated and had the highest percentage of foreign-born residents of any district in the city.

Many of the early immigrants in this community were of diverse faiths. These faiths were reflected by the number of churches that were erected to address the many needs within the neighborhood. The churches addressed spiritual encouragement, social and economic issues and aiding citizens to settle into their new urban homes. Churches like Sacred Heart Catholic Church and South Calvary Baptist Church were founded during this era and are still making a difference in the Old Southside community and throughout the city today.

This historic neighborhood is now the home of Lucas Oil Stadium, a state-of-the-art facility that is home to the Indianapolis Colts and Indy Eleven. Old Southside was put on the world stage when Indianapolis became the host of the Super Bowl during the NFL 2011-2012 season. The Giants would go on to defeat Colts’ rival the Patriots in a 21-17 victory.

“Since the start of our great city, we acknowledge our rich and diverse past while continuing to write the future history of Indianapolis,” Mayor Hogsett said. “Old Southside is the classic example of making and writing history and why I am proud to highlight this community as Neighborhood of the Month.”

History continues to be made in Old Southside as the community will be recipients of the Lift Indy grant for 2018. The program was created for long-term neighborhood revitalization through two U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development grants - the HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).

Lift Indy comes as part of Mayor Hogsett’s commitment to transforming Indianapolis neighborhoods. This strategic investment of public funds aims to support the growth of economic development opportunities, the preservation and development of quality affordable housing, creative placemaking, availability of social services, infrastructure, public amenities, social engagement, and other aspects of quality of life that make up a complete neighborhood. The funds will be targeted in areas where public investments could help realize market potential. Old Southside will become the second neighborhood across the city to receive funding. Councillor Jefferson Shreve represents Old Southside.

“Old Southside continues to make strides to become an area to live, work and play” said Councillor Shreve, “I am honored for the recognition and future investment from Mayor Hogsett to further advance the neighborhood’s efforts to become a great community and neighborhood for its residents.”

Residents and visitors are encouraged to use the hashtag #IndyNoM when posting on social media about Old Southside. To nominate your neighborhood for Neighborhood of the Month visit: http://indy.gov/NoM.
