History

Crooked Creek Indy, formerly 

Crooked Creek Community Council, Inc. (C4) has represented the area surrounding Crooked Creek since 1967. CCI has its origin as The Olde Michigan Road Council, which was organized on May 18, 1967, with the purpose of preserving and restoring historical landmarks and promoting orderly development and beautification of Michigan Road.

 CCI (C4) was instrumental in several projects of which we are particularly proud, specifically the initiation and development of the Crooked Creek Multi-Service Center (CCMSC)  the  initiation and development of Juan Solomon Park, The development of a CDC to address affordable housing. 

and the creation of a pedestrian trail along Michigan Rds. west side. Today, both the Crooked Creek Multi-Service Center and the CDC act independently from CCI.

CCI (C4’s) also initiated the Michigan Rd. Corridor Plan- a detailed land use plan that assists the community when considering new development, environmental issues, zoning issues and traffic pattern concerns.
