PPS is working with the grantees and partners of Inspiring Places Initiative of the Central Indiana Community Foundation to build capacity for Placemaking in the Indianapolis region. One focus of this effort has been on Monument Circle, one of the city’s most iconic public spaces. The Circle, which hosts numerous events throughout the year, has the potential to become an even better destination for downtown activity.
PPS provided a report outlining a process for improvements, which included a management plan, additional amenities and flexible activities.
“From a European perspective, this could be one of the great public spaces in America, it seems to me,” said Simon Crookall, president of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, which performs at Hilbert Circle Theatre. “It has enormous potential.”
