About Sylvan Ridge
Sylvan Ridge Civic Association is a home-owner based group to support the neighborhood of Sylvan Ridge in Indianapolis, IN. The Sylvan Ridge Civic Association was established in May 1965. Its purpose is to foster the general improvement of the area, along with the formation of a structure to cover any mutual problems that might arise. The board is always working to improve and maintain social functions, snow removal, lighting, common landscaping, communication, neighborhood directory, crime watch, website, common initiatives and safety and security. With great pleasure it is wonderful to proclaim we have near 100% participation in the voluntary annual fee which is currently $150. We are very thankful to have this participation level. Over the years, we have restored the brick pillars at the entrances, worked with the city while the city sewer project was completed and upgraded the lighting system throughout. Currently, the board is striving to improve all aspects of this neighborhood with the committed neighbors currently serving. There are several initiatives under consideration.
A. H. M. Graves (Merriam) was the developer of Sylvan Ridge. Merriam Road bears his name and Channing Circle bears the name of his wife's son, Channing Smith. The first Sylvan Ridge homes were built along Cranbrook Drive, 71st Street, and Dean Road, followed by Channing Circle, Briarwood and Sylvan Ridge between 71st Street and Briarwood. The remainder of Sylvan Ridge Road, Merriam, Huntington, and Haverhill were all part of the "second addition". Before those streets were cut through, there was only vacant land north of Briarwood, and the traffic was a few teenagers on the back paths toward Sweetwater.
Home Show homes that were dismantled and rebuilt in Sylvan Ridge are: 1956 - 3712 East 71st; 1968 - 7305 Huntington; 1969 - 7224 Huntington Road; N/A - 7321 Sylvan Ridge Road.
