The Indianapolis City-County Council held a full meeting Monday night.
The meeting started with a special resolution to recognize a teenager working to promote peace in his community. Reese Hamilton has organized drives for youth and people experiencing homelessness and held peace events in response to record violence.
"We shouldn’t be killing each other. We should be holding each other up, building each other up, building our community back," Hamilton said.
The council also approved a resolution recognizing Black History Month.
Several proposals for revitalization and redevelopment were introduced. One new measure would use TIF funding to establish a mixed-use, multi-family development in the 16 Tech neighborhood. Another development project proposal allocates $750 thousand to the Lafayette Square Community Revitalization Enhancement district.
Final approval was given to code changes that allow for downtown traffic changes for new IndyGo super stops.
