Public Information Meetings July 14

Based on public input and feedback from the Indianapolis City Planners Office, we have made some changes to our layout and number of tiny houses. We are planning two public information meetings (one in-person and one virtual) Tuesday, July 14 to give people an opportunity to learn more about these changes.

The in-person meeting will be July 14 at 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary of Lynhurst Baptist Church. The address is 1250 S. Lynhurst Dr. Indianapolis. Those in attendance will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing according to recommended COVID 19 guidelines. For those who are in high-risk health categories or concerned about meeting in public, we will have a virtual meeting via Zoom the same evening beginning at 8:00 PM. To participate in this meeting, simply click on this link after 7:55 PM on Tuesday, July 14. For the virtual meeting, participants will be able to type questions in the chatbox.

As can be seen in the design layout below, we have made some changes to our plans to conform with requests from neighbors and city planners. We have decreased the final number of houses from 28 to 18. We have added a bike storage building where residents can store their bicycles. We have added a sidewalk along the Lynhurst side of the property and are working with other local agencies to lobby for additional sidewalks to make a paved walking path all the way to Washington St for easier access to IndyGo buses. We are also developing plans to add recreational amenities to the old baseball diamond area to convert it into a pocket park that will be available to both residents and neighbors for recreation and community events.

To hear more about our updated plans before we apply for our zoning change, feel free to attend one of the public information meetings below.

I grew up in northeast Wisconsin. After high school, I moved to Minneapolis, MN to attend North Central University and graduated 1992 with a degree in Biblical Studies and Humanities. I spent most of the next fifteen years in the Twin Cities area until my family and I moved to Indiana in 2007. For most of the first seventeen years after college, I was involved in university ministry either as a volunteer, bi-vocational, or full-time campus minister. Through those years, I also worked in the main street marketplace as a retail manager/trainer and as a service representative in the insurance industry. I've also worked in various education roles. Most recently, I have been working on various projects addressing homelessness in Indianapolis and as team lead for Diakonos Community, a Communitas International missional initiative. Through this ministry, we seek to build missional communities in Indianapolis that serve and bring the life of Christ to those on the margins of society. Our strategy is to collaborate with community agencies that serve those in need and share Christ through meaningful relationships. I am blessed with a wonderful wife, three amazing daughters, and two cats (can't forget the cats, LOL). As a family, we enjoy camping, hiking, gardening, and going to the YMCA together. I also enjoy fishing, riding bicycle, and being involved in whatever my daughters are doing. Though I have not lived in the Green Bay area for over 20 years, I am still a major Packer fan.
