Northeast Neighborhood Revitalization

Working to create a shared neighborhood.

As part of the revitalization in the Northeast Neighborhood, a major mixed-income, single-family home development is underway north of State Road 23 and south of the University of Notre Dame. Existing residential areas throughout the Northeast Neighborhood are pedestrian-friendly, tree-lined streets with one to three-story structures that create a comfortable neighborhood human scale. This character, typical of South Bend’s neighborhoods, will be preserved and enhanced through building placement and massing in both rehabilitation and new residential development. A variety of housing styles shall be designed for the Triangle Neighborhood that will recreate the historic context of the existing surrounding neighborhoods.

Purpose: To facilitate the revitalization efforts and continue to foster diversity within the Northeast Neighborhood – its residents, businesses, and stakeholders – into a safe, vita, cohesive community that preserves its assets and respects the needs of all who reside, work, and visit within its boundaries.

2017 Annual Report

A Letter from the President of the Board

Dear Friends,

This is my 9th year as Board President and each year I am amazed at the continued progress in the Northeast Neighborhood. It is everyone working together that continues to make the Northeast Neighborhood a growing and welcoming place. I personally want to thank our residents and institutional partners who continue to devote time, energy, financial resources and thoughtful ideas to creating an even better neighborhood.

This year we are nearing completion on our Hill Street new housing development, which has seen 15 new homes built in the last 4 years. We also accomplished a major step in finalizing the last three lots available for construction in The Triangle through our partnership with the South Bend Housing Authority. As we complete these impressive strides in physical development we also continue to analyze the impact of our work. In 2017, we completed the second round of our Community Impact Measurement as a follow-up from the 2013 Community Survey. We also began planning our fundraising efforts to restore and enhance historic Firehouse 7, the home of the Northeast Neighborhood Council.

In partnership with the NNRO, the Firehouse also welcomed a new resident in attorney, Tasha Reed Outlaw who now offers legal services in her office on the second floor.

As we approach 2018, I look forward to seeing more progress on Eddy Street Commons Phase II and the implementation of the NNDA Plan in partnership with the City of South Bend. It has been a pleasure working with such a dedicated group of individuals and the entire neighborhood as we continue to build a strong community that fosters diversity and an appreciation for neighborhood assets.
