Here is the latest news from the Georgia Street project. I stopped after classes last night for just a moment to snap a couple of pictures. I feel like this update is almost symbolic of the the struggle that has become the Georgia Street overhaul. The City, over the past month, has made a public push to rename Georgia Street. It has been covered in many local media outlets, so it is not worth spending the keystrokes here but suffice to say, last night the Indianapolis City Council voted unanimously on a measure urging the Mayor to halt the renaming process. While nothing is official about it, the fact that there was a 28-0 vote in favor of keeping the street named Georgia Street should send a loud message to the mayor.
Anyway, here are the latest updates. The project is suppose to be wrapped up by November 1st, and it appears that they could actually be on schedule to meet that deadline. There are many trees in the ground and dirt is being laid in some of the planting areas.
You can see that there is still a lot of finishing work to do, but the project is really starting to look quite impressive.
