Update on Crown Hill Cemetery

Downtown Indianapolis from Crown Hill Cemetery

Opponents of the development at Crown Hill Cemetery, showing uncommon star power, on Wednesday defeated a plan that would have allowed more than 300 houses and a strip mall on the cemetery’s northernmost 70 acres.

There’s hope after all for environmentally responsible development in Indianapolis. I’m hoping that the owners of Crown Hill Cemetery find a way to deal constructively with the budget issues they have, without trying to sell off part of their land for development into strip malls and housing, and that either the city or someone who will respect the environmental value of the property will help out.
