INDIANAPOLIS — The development petitions for the area of Glendale Town Center were approved for the initial phases of the project at a meeting Wednesday.

The group 'Glendale Done Right' is fighting to voice neighbors' concerns over the redevelopment of the popular area at 62nd Street and Keystone Avenue.

Nearby homeowners don't object to new construction; in fact, they say they welcome it.

But they say the current plans need some additions, such as better drainage plans, more green space and better traffic signals at nearby intersections.

"We need to make it bike-friendly, pedestrian-friendly, let people connect from Glendale to Broad Ripple, and from Glendale to the Keystone corridor, south of Kessler, which is economically challenged and needs a good shot in the arm," Dan Henkel, the Riddle Manor residents president, said.

Community activists say they will continue to push for thoughtful additions to the plans.
