October 2013 Wallpaper
It is so easy to select images from the Cultural Trail for the monthly wallpaper. In terms of design, the trail really does raise the bar for Indianapolis and I do not mind showing it off so that people become used to this and begin demanding better.

Indy Greenways Looks To The Future

For many Indianapolis residents, the local system of greenways has become a favorite staple of our community. It’s encouraging and exciting to think how far the system has come in the 22 years that have past since the Indy Greenways Foundation was formed in 1991. Over the course of the summer, the foundation has traveled around the city to collect ideas and feedback about how the greenways systems should develop from here, and just recently they made their 2013-2023 Master Plan public. The plan is available here. It’s a comprehensive, 102-page document, and there is a LOT to get excited...
