Mayor Greg Ballard today unveiled a long-term strategic plan for Indianapolis that builds on a theme he's been hammering home for weeks: make the city a more attractive place for young families and the resulting growth in tax revenue will provide the funding needed to meet the community's aspirations.

The plan encompasses many of the initiatives Ballard has laid out recently to fix local schools, root out crime, spur new development, clean up decaying center-city neighborhoods, attract new jobs and incubate homegrown start-ups.

But it also includes new proposals to install more streetlights and create a school designed to help students transfer from high school to some sort of postsecondary training and on to high-paying jobs.
