Fiscal Implications of Development Patterns (2015)
The connection between land use development and the costs of providing public infrastructure and services has long been a topic of study.  This analysis, prepared by Smart Growth America, uses actual City of Indianapolis/Marion County budget numbers to explore the fiscal implications of different development patterns in Indianapolis.

Indy Fast Track (2014)​
Brought on by the recent closure of three of Indianapolis’ automotive manufacturing facilities and the significant loss of production at a fourth, the purpose of the Indy FastTrack Initiative is to create a market-based strategy to repurpose the resultant vacant and underutilized sites.  The lessons learned will build our capacity to duplicate this approach for other sites in need of reuse.  Indy FastTrack’s intent is to assess our economy’s vitality and ability to spur new manufacturing investment.  This combined approach is further intended to create higher-skill, higher-wage jobs thereby enhancing the City's economic strength and diversity.
