Revitalizing the Meadows
In the 1950s and 1960s, the Meadows area was "the" place to live, work and play. It was home to one of the first premier shopping centers in Indianapolis. The Avondale Playhouse booked nationally known entertainers during the summer months. The apartments in the area were the first Indianapolis homes of business people and professionals, many of whom subsequently assumed important leadership positions in the Indianapolis community. Then, in the 1970s, concentrated poverty became the theme in urban areas nationwide.
The goal of the Meadows Community Foundation is to build an attractive, safe, 100-acre neighborhood and replace concentrated poverty with a mix of affordable and market-rate homes. We seek to bring fresh food at reasonable prices back to an area that is over three miles from the nearest grocery store and to create a multi-use park with ample green spaces, community gardens and a health and wellness center. We will build on the extraordinary educational opportunities available to the neighborhood through two of Indianapolis’ finest charter schools.
