What Bert Has To Say About Indianapolis-Carmel-Anderson Metro Area

Indianapolis, once a poster child for blighted Midwestern old-economy cities, is now a showcase for publicly coordinated and funded urban renewal. The city features a city/county “Unigov” government system, which has worked well for coordinated planning and public redevelopment efforts. Cost of living is very attractive for this type of city. The vastly renewed downtown core boasts attractive new buildings, pedestrian zones, and a state-of-the-art sports arena.
