The first of two public meetings about Indianapolis' new neighborhood projects was held Tuesday night.

The proposed "Rebuild Indy 2" plan would go toward much-needed infrastructure improvements across Marion County, like the area of 54th Street near Washington and College Avenue. It would provide up to $350 million for various roads, sidewalks and bridges.

Before the council approves the plan, officials want to know what the public wants to see done.

"So we encourage them to contact their councilors, come with letters for them to sign that we can deliver to their councilors," said Department of Public Works spokesperson Stephanie Wilson. "You know, anything we can do to continue to draw attention to the need for the Rebuild Indy 2 plan and get people excited about it and let them know it's not going to happen unless they contact their representative."

The next public meeting is set for Thursday from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at 37 Place Community Center on East 25th Street.
