Veedersburg Revitalization Association, Inc.
The Veedersburg Revitalization Association, Inc. (VRA) was formed in 2011 with a mission to encourage the community to preserve and reinvest in the economic, aesthetic and cultural future of Veedersburg by promoting viability and vitality of the downtown area.
VRA meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. in the town community room.
The public is encouraged to attend.
In 2016, the VRA purchased checkered banners to be hung during the month of May in order to celebrate our town’s part in providing the bricks that built the Indy 500 racetrack. The VRA committed to a $3,000 match for the Downtown Enhancement Grant which has been awarded to build a beautiful pocket park in the vacant space left when two storefronts on Second Street were demolished.
During 2016, the VRA sponsored the Scarecrow Jubilee and a town wide yard sale day in addition to co-sponsoring the Brickyard 5k/10k Walk Run. Members also hosted the annual Christmas Parade and served coffee and hot chocolate to the spectators. An Indiana Bi-Centennial puzzle showing Veedersburg’s paver brick was sold; spring and fall flowers were purchased and maintained in the new downtown planters, the town’s Welcome signs and the Brickyard to Brickyard mural.
Thirteen local businesses gave silver to corporate sponsorships to help continue the work of promoting the town.
