Saint Joseph was designated a historic district in 1991. The Saint Joseph Historic Neighborhood Foundation (SJHNF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity, was established in 2002 to facilitate fundraising for neighborhood improvement projects. Our focus is the improvement of our neighborhood for present and future residents and it's contribution to the greater downtown Indianapolis community.
The SJHNF board is comprised of volunteer members of the Saint Joseph Historic neighborhood Association (SJHNA) Board of Directors.
The 10th Street Repairs are underway. We are addressing quality concerns on the stretch east of Alabaman Street. If you would like to share your concerns with the DPW Project Manager, Todd Wilson, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information about upcoming events is also listed in the St. Joe Press section of the Urban Times and through neighborhood eBlasts. [Updated 10/10/16]
The St. Joe Board has teamed up with the Old Northside Board to support a LED lighting project at the Alabama Street Underpass that connects our two neighborhoods. The designers have secured a generous grant that covers almost half the cost of the project with the help of the Harrison Center. The St. Joe and Old Northside Foundations have each pledged $2,000 and are actively seeking funds to bridge the gap in order to get the project underway. Our combined goal is to raise the remaining $5,000 to fund the project.
We support this project because it will add the safety of the area at night and complement the existing mural to serve as a main gateway to our neighborhood. The LED lighting used in the project is expected to last 25 years. Contributions made are eligible for charitable donation deductions under IRC Section 501(c)(3). Donations can be made to the St. Joseph Historic Neighborhood Foundation. For questions and further information related to the project, please contact Pete Haupers at email@example.com.
We ask that you, St. Joe residents and businesses, consider supporting the project along with us!
