Downtown Historic Neighborhood Association

283 BroadwayMainstreet Shelbyville has been encouraging the resurrection of the historic neighborhood association for several months. The project became one of Mainstreet Shelbyville’s goals set at the yearly retreat this January. The benefits of a thriving downtown business district and a healthy downtown residential district go hand and hand. When you promote both areas they tend to feed off one another and both of the areas tend to grow and benefit. To promote the association and its growth, Mainstreet Shelbyville has set aside some funds to help with neighborhood projects. We hope to raise more money through fundraisers such as our Holiday Home Tour and are currently looking to secure some of the beautiful homes for this year’s tour. The proceeds this year will be donated to the Historic Neighborhood Association and some of the beautification projects.

228 Washington Street, Shelbyville, INIn the past months, a couple of meetings have been organized and attendance has been strong. During those meetings the attending residents were asked to voice their concerns and desires for their beautiful neighborhood. Some of the projects mentioned were improving street lighting, planning and maintaining a street tree program, planting the Bower Point street island as well as implementing historical house plaques on homes. All of these items are being considered and some of them are already in the works. A neighborhood block party is also being planned for the residents in late summer.

The next planned Historic Neighborhood Association meeting is July 14th at 7:00pm located at the Shelbyville Public Library in the Carnegie East Wing. We encourage all of the Neighborhood’s residents to please attend and bring your suggestions. Please tell and bring your neighbors, the more involvement we have the easier it will be to get some great things done. We hope to see you there!

If you have any questions or can’t attend the meeting and would like any additional information please contact Brandy Coomes at Mainstreet Shelbyville at 317-398-9552 or bcoomes@mainstreetshelbyville.org.
