INDIANAPOLIS — Indy Parks is helping connect minority construction workers with opportunities in their own neighborhoods.
People were invited to stop by Frederick Douglass Park Wednesday for an open house hiring fair.
There are $37 million in construction projects this year, including a new family center at Douglass.
"When we have these projects with economic opportunities, it's not just for big contractors. There should also be opportunities for the people who live in the areas where we have these projects," said Indy Parks Director Phyllis Boyd.
If you missed Wednesday's event, there will be more opportunities. The Martindale-Brightwood Community Development Corporation is working on future community outreach.
