2017 NEAR Community Luncheon

100 Redeveloped Homes

Join us at our 2017 Annual Community Luncheon for great food and
focus on how NEAR is helping to shape the Near Eastside’s future.

Keynote Speaker • Dr. Lewis Ferebee

Dr. Lewis Ferebee is Superintendent of Indianapolis Public Schools. Dr. Ferebee’s leadership over the  past three years has been marked by innovation and adaptation for the sake of achieving new levels of excellence in the urban school district. Dr. Ferebee has assisted the Near Eastside to transition IPS School 15 to Thomas Gregg Neighborhood School, an innovation network school. He is also working with NEAR and the City of Indianapolis in development of a Teachers’ Village–offering neighborhood homeownership and rental housing opportunities for IPS novice teachers as a teacher retention strategy.

NEAR will complete its 100th house in St. Clair Place this summer. This is a milestone we hope you will celebrate with us. We plan to continue neighborhood revitalization even as we invest for Near Eastside-wide economic development in fresh ways.
