Greenwood is taking advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform the heart of the city. Initial conceptual plans include:
9 miles of new or reconstructed streetscape
9 acres of new or upgraded open space
75,000+ sq. ft. of potential retail/office space
Proposed 450+ apartments and 130+ townhomes

Indiana may be rooted in basketball history, but Indy Fuel owners Jim
and Sean Hallett are investing millions to position hockey as the state’s future. The Halletts joined Greenwood Mayor Mark W. Myers in announcing the Greenwood Iceplex, a 115,000 square-foot facility expected to be a regional destination for both youth hockey and other ice sports.
Featuring two finished ice rinks, two turf fields (convertible to two additional ice rinks), a fitness/training facility, retail space, locker rooms and food service facilities, the Greenwood Iceplex will be constructed on 6 acres in Greenwood’s Freedom Park and will be among the largest facilities of its kind in the nation.
Old City Park, one of the city’s most storied parks located in the heart of downtown, is being completely re-imagined. The park will feature a promenade – designed for both pedestrians and bicyclists – providing access from Madison Ave. to Meridian Street.
The promenade will run adjacent to Mrs. Curl, Greenwood’s legendary ice cream shop. It will also connect to the planned expansion of Pleasant Creek Trail, providing a path into Craig Park and the Greenwood Amphitheater.
Plans also include a new tree-lined road connecting Surina Way to Market Plaza and the replacement of a century-old sewer.
Old Town Greenwood features some of the oldest and most historically significant residences in the region. The city, working with local nonprofit Restore Old Town Greenwood, is taking the next step to officially designate the district’s historical importance.
Greenwood believes Old Town belongs on the National Register of Historic Places. If approved, homeowners will be eligible for tax credits on certain improvements and would likely see property values increase.
Downtown Greenwood has begun its transformation. More than 20 building facades in the heart of the city are now restored to their former glory, presenting an improved and welcoming look for resident and visitors.
Greenwood residents and businesses recently joined city leaders to celebrate the project's completion.
Greenwood is extending Pleasant Creek Trail from Craig Park to South Meridian Street, providing connectivity between Old City Park and the Greenwood Amphitheater.
The trail would also provide needed pedestrian access between Old City Park and the Community Center.
An additional project component involves various site improvements to the area, including widened sidewalks and additional parking. Construction will begin in 2017.
To address significant traffic backups on eastbound and westbound Smith Valley and southbound Madison Avenue at peak hours, and to improve motorist safety in the area, the City of Greenwood is planning a roundabout, with construction scheduled for 2018.
For more information on the project, contact City Engineer Mark Richards at 317.887.5230 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City of Greenwood has proposed a major sewer relief project, which if approved, would be the largest capital project in the city’s history.
Initial design plans for the Western Regional Interceptor call for the installation of 10 miles of sewer pipeline throughout White River Township, which is serviced by Greenwood’s sanitary sewer system. Total cost of the project could range from $60 to $70 million.
Greenwood will soon begin construction of its third major roundabout. Both Yorktown and Honey Creek Roads have become heavily trafficked, and the new roundabout will allow safer and smoother traffic flow for residents and commuters.
The intersection is scheduled to close on May 30, 2017 and will reopen on July 28, 2017.
