Public workshops for South Bend neighborhoods

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A series of neighborhood planning workshops will be open to South Bend residents of the Near West Side and Northeast Neighborhoods to communicate, plan, and prioritize for future area projects.

These workshops will give residents an opportunity to provide ideas and direction in their neighborhoods concerning housing, infrastructure, land use, amenities and more.

“I encourage neighbors to get involved during this planning process. Resident feedback is vital to the development of strong neighborhood plans that chart the right direction for our community to move forward together,” said South Bend Mayor James Mueller.

The public workshops will help create priority for the order in which future projects, policies, and programs are completed or put in place.

Each workshop will have zoom meetings available for people who cannot attend in person.

Near West Side Neighborhoods will have their next public workshop on September 1 at 6 p.m. at the Civil Rights Heritage Center. Click here for access to this workshop’s zoom meeting.

Northeast Neighborhoods will have workshops at St. Joseph High School on Thursday at 6 p.m. and on August 26 at 6 p.m.

The City of South Bend has announced that similar public workshops will be hosted in the fall for the Kennedy Park and Rum Village Neighborhoods.

“This year, our team is tackling the development of four neighborhood plans, including three on the City’s west side. These plans help set a course for neighborhoods, and it is so important that as many voices as possible are involved in the planning process,” said Santiago Garces, Executive Director of the Department of Community Investment.
