Spring Neighborhood Cleanup - April 7th!

PLEASE join your neighbors to clean up our fantastic neighborhood. This makes a huge difference when the trees start blooming. Winter seems to bring a lot of trash! Fantastic prizes donated by our awesome Business Collective!


When is it?  The clean-up is on Saturday, April 7, from 9 a.m. to noon. 

Where do we meet?  Craigs Kids Park at 23rd and Alabama. 

Do I need tools?  No.  Shovels, rakes, trash bags, and gloves are all provided. 

Do I need to be part of the HOA to participate?  Absolutely not.  The HOA helps organize the event, but all neighbors are welcome and needed. 

Will I have to carry heavy trash bags?  No.  We will have a truck driving around the neighborhood to pick up and consolidate the trash bags, so you just need to fill the bags and leave them at the curb. 

What needs cleaned?  Well, just about everything.  Scraping leaves and dirt from curbs and clearing gutters is always an area of focus.  Public spaces, such as under the bridge along the Fall Creek Trail, as well as a few abandoned lots that collect trash and dumping are also areas of focus. 

Anything else to motivate me besides a sense of self-satisfaction and quality time with neighbors?  Yes!  Shoefly will host a free cookout after the clean-up for volunteers.  Also, free coffee, water, doughnuts, and door prizes (t-shirts, yoga passes, etc) and beer will be provided by the Fall Creek Business Collective and HOA. 

Fall Creek Fest Coming up in September

Live Music, Food and Drinks in Craig Kids Memorial Park. Come hang with neighbors and help us raise money for Phase I of Craig Kids Memorial Park! Food and Drinks from Goose the Market, Shoefly, Mashcraft, Tea's Me, Central State, Artisan Picnic and 22nd St. Diner! We will be set up in the park and blocking off 23rd Street.

April Update

Get involved in the neighborhood

Along with the Home Owners Association Board of Directors, volunteers from the neighborhood play a key role by serving on HOA committees.  These committees serve a wide variety of functions.  If you are interested in volunteering your time and efforts, please contact or each committee individually.

Fall Creek Place Committees

  • Land Use Committee – The Land Use Committee acts as a representative of the neighborhood when new land uses are proposed.  Our primary goal is to help shape new developments so that they benefit existing residents and conform to long-term planning goals for the neighborhood.  A secondary goal of the Land Use Committee is to help advertise land use opportunities within the neighborhood. Committee Chairperson: Chris Corr.  Committee Contact:
  • Crime Watch Committee – The Fall Creek Place Crimewatch Committee strives to maintain a safe neighborhood for all residents. The committee is made up of individual block clubs as well as other interested neighbors, and participants need not be members of the Fall Creek Place HOA to participate. The committee tracks crime statistics, works with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and other city agencies to address problems, provides information to members and to the neighborhood about crime activities and prevention and seeks to build relationships between neighbors. Crimewatch members share information through a secure list-serv email group restricted to members.  Committee Contact:
  • Maintenance Committee – Fall Creek Place has one of the most complete investments of public garden infrastructure in the city.  This "garden district" includes obvious large-scale elements like our gateway monuments and public parks, but also includes our unique planted "bump-outs" along our major streets as well as the decorative paving at many pedestrian intersections.  It is up to neighborhood residents to maintain these unique elements that help define our neighborhood's character. Committee Chairperson: Heather Roemer Committee Contact:
  • Design Review Committee - The Fall Creek Place Design Review Committee strives to protect our investment and neighborhood character by ensuring compliance with the Fall Creek Place Design Guidelines.  The Committee is established by the Fall Creek Place Covenants and is charged with reviewing all exterior changes to HOA-member homes and yards. Committee Chairperson: Bart Gander. Committee Contact:
  • Fall Creek Foundation - The Fall Creek Place Foundation serves to enhance the quality of life of all neighbors.  Our mission is to create a better sense of community among Fall Creek Place residents by developing and improving public spaces.  The vision of the Foundation is to be a force of inclusion, bringing together neighbors from all walks of life, by creating unique spaces and experiences.  The FCP Foundation is a 501(C)3 non-profit and is the official fundraising arm of the HOA. Your donation will help improve our neighborhood!  We are always looking for volunteers interested in helping us create a better sense of community. Please feel free to contact us here:

March Update

Diana Robertson Leads Award Winning Lilly Day of Service Project

Neighbor Diana Robertson lives on the 2400 block of New Jersey and works for Lilly Diabetes.  Last October she led a service project that benefited Indianapolis Animal CARE and Control.  A video from that project was entered into the 2015 Super Service Challenge and won $3,000 courtesy of the Drew Brees Foundation.  We caught up with Diana to ask her about the project and how Fall Creek Place Residents can get involved.

Fall Creek Place Newsletter: Tell us about the Lilly Day of Service Project

Diana: The Lilly Day of Service (DOS) is an annual event that took place October 1.  I assembled 150 of my colleagues at Eli Lilly and Elanco Animal Health to give the under-funded/under-staffed Indianapolis Animal CARE and Control (IACC) a much needed makeover. 

Fall Creek Place Newsletter:  Who else was involved and what kind of work did you do?

Diana:  With the help of a generous donation from the Friends of Indianapolis Animal Care and Control Foundation (FIACCFI) (a non-profit organization dedicated to helping Indy’s shelter animals) along with Sherwin Williams Paints, Sign Craft Industries, Artist Susan Kline, and the Eli Lilly DOS volunteers, together we: 

  • painted two fun colorful murals on the exterior,
  • painted LOTS of chain link fencing,
  • added several outdoor play areas with benches and play equipment for dogs,
  • painted several interior rooms including 3 cat rooms and the employee/volunteer break room,
  • added an outdoor shelter for employees/volunteers in the back of the property,
  • socialized cats and gave them TLC,
  • and general clean-up giving the facility and grounds a facelift. 

The “Homeward Bound” mural image was transferred onto t-shirts.  We also incorporated the IACC Chief’s vision of branding CARE in the IACC name (Caring for Animals Responsibly and Ethically) and it’s painted prominently on the visitors parking lot side of the building.  We compiled a video of volunteers stating “Why You Served” and submitted it to the Super Service Challenge contest.  It won $3,000 for the FIACCFI and they will use it to purchase an X-ray machine to diagnose trauma in shelter animals. 

Fall Creek Newsletter:  How can Fall Creek Place residents get involved?

Diana:  IACC always needs volunteers.  Anyone can volunteer individually and it’s a great place for a team-building activity for groups.  Even children can volunteer with their parents.  Who doesn’t love to play with dogs or love on cats?  And there are many other things that can be done at IACC that is always appreciated by this under-staffed organization.  Contact Diana Robertson at or 317.923.4598 for guidance on how to get involved and make life better for shelter animals.  It’s a wonderful way to give back to animals and the community.  If you can’t volunteer, consider donating to FIACCFI (

Crime Watch Block Captains

With spring upon us, Fall Creek Place will once again come to life with active neighbors and visitors. Residents are reminded to keep their eyes open for suspicious behavior or anything that looks out of the ordinary and to report these things to the police.  We also encourage neighbors to volunteer to organize Crimewatch Blocks.  For more information, please contact  All neighbors can help keep Fall Creek Place a safer place by following these 2 tips and action steps for crime prevention.

  1. Use Outdoor Lights Regularly – Your exterior lights reduce crime.  Keep your exterior lights on at night and make sure they are working properly.  Motion-activated lights are especially helpful as they draw attention to any movement.  If your front pole light is out, often times it needs the GFI outlet reset or the bulb replaced.  If the problem is the dusk until dawn sensor is broken and you need help replacing it, please contact  Also, it is important to call IPL at 317.261.8111 to report street light that are out.
  2. Bring Garbage and Recycling Cans Inside – Garbage cans left in alleys provide leverage to criminals.  Bringing them inside your garage or fence weekly after trash pickup can prevent criminals from using them as a step stool to climb a fence or as a storage place for stolen items.  It also helps keep the alley looking clean and free of trash by preventing people from rummaging through you garbage.

Fall Creek Place Foundation Selling NAP Credits

The Fall Creek Place Foundation received a Neighborhood Assistance Program (NAP) grant from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority. We still have $1,760.00 in Indiana tax credits for sale to raise money to improve the park at 23rd/Alabama. For every $200 donated to Fall Creek Place Foundation, the donor receives a $100 tax credit toward 2016 Indiana tax liability. 

John Doe owes Indiana Department of Revenue $1000 for 2016. Mr. Doe donates $400 to Fall Creek Place Foundation through the NAP grant. Mr. Doe will get a $200 tax credit and now only has to pay Indiana $1000 - $200 = $800 for 2016. 

If you are interested in purchasing a NAP tax credit contact me at  Donations will be processed on a first come, first served basis
