Transition for Karen Lightbourne… New Mayor’s Neighborhood Liaison coming to Pike!

Change is coming to Pike Township. Starting August 1st, Karen Lightbourne will no longer be the Mayor’s Neighborhood Liaison for the area. In an effort to better serve all residents of Indianapolis, the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services has redrawn the MNL Districts and made some reassignments. This will allow for more efficiency in providing customer service and grassroots outreach. In addition, it will also allow for better stewardship of your tax dollars. My new assignment will be to serve as the Mayor’s Neighborhood Liaison for Warren Township. The previous liaison retired several months ago.

The new MNL for the Pike Township/Outer Northwest District will be Noelle Malatestinic. She has been a MNL for over five years (on the northeast side) and brings a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm to the position. Again, we are targeting August 1st as the start date for the formal transition, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Adopt a “Pike” Block

Every block counts!

Do your part by helping to keep the street, sidewalks, alleyways, curbs and sewer drains around your house clean of litter on an ongoing basis!

Sign up to coordinate neighbors to keep your block clean and beautified through the Adopt-A-Block program with Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc.!

Your block will be scored for its cleanliness on a monthly basis, April through October. In return for keeping your block clean, you will receive resources — gloves, trash bags, tools, flowers and trees!

A clean block is a safe block!
• Clean blocks send the signal to criminals that someone cares, and reduces instances of illegal dumping and property crimes.
• Blocks free of litter result in increased property values for our homes.
• The activity of cleaning our block will help us get to know our neighbors and feel a stronger sense of community.

FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ADOPT-A-BLOCK AND OTHER NEIGHBORHOOD BEAUTIFICATION RESOURCES, VISIT WWW.KIBI.ORG OR CALL 317-264-7555 X106.

Indy DO Day

Indy DO Day Organizers Seek 100,000 Volunteers to Participate in First Community-Wide Service Initiative

An Indianapolis grassroots coalition is seeking to unite and mobilize 100,000 volunteers for community-wide service initiative – called Indy DO Day. Organizers envision that the people-powered initiative will for the first time energize the entire community to come together in service over the course of three days – October 10-12, 2013

Right now, the coalition is calling on all Indianapolis businesses and nonprofits. Businesses are asked to commit their time to serving the community while nonprofits are asked to submit their needs.

The goal of Indy DO Day is for residents of Indianapolis to get to know their neighbors, take ownership of their neighborhoods and take care of one another. A community service project can be anything from hyper-local, neighborhood-focused projects that can be as varied as getting your hands dirty through a beautification project to donating your skills or materials to a local charity to giving your time to help a neighbor in need.

Do you know of a place in Pike Township that could use a little sprucing up? Read On….

The 2013 April Great Indy (Pike Township) Cleanup is Just Around the Corner!

Saturday April 27, 2013

KIB’s Great Indy Cleanup is an anti-litter program in partnership with the City of Indianapolis designed to combat heavy litter and debris that has accumulated in public spaces such as streets, alleys, greenspaces and waterways. The Great Indy Cleanup program runs weekends from April through October and provides dumpsters, trash bags and gloves while supplies last. Community groups may sign up for up to two cleanups per year. Please remember, the dumpster provided is not for personal use (cleaning out garages, basements, homeowner association property, etc.) or the personal use of volunteers/neighbors. Disposal of the collected trash is donated by South Side Landfill, and is intended for cleanup of public spaces only. Failure to comply jeopardizes the neighborhood’s ability to benefit from future resources from KIB.

Requests for the April 2013 Great Indy Cleanup will be accepted starting February 11, 2013.
