Great Places 2020 is a collaborative initiative with both neighborhood-based and implementation partners to create great spaces where people can live, work, and play. With five areas in Marion County being designated a “great place”, each area has developed transformative L.O.V.E goals (Livability, Opportunity, Vitality, and Education) to meet the specific needs of that great place.The Near Northwest is a historic community which has a great place designation called King Commons. King Commons is centered at the intersection of 25th and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Streets.
