Remembering Tamara Zahn

Downtown Indy, Inc. was saddened by the sudden passing of our dear friend Tamara Zahn, the founding president of Indianapolis Downtown, Inc. where she served from 1993-2012.
Indianapolis has lost a civic icon who was a giant among corporate, nonprofit and elected leaders and peers. Her passion for Downtown Indy was unparalleled, which led to national recognition for outstanding urban revitalization, monumental development and unrivaled beautification — all due to her inspired leadership and attention to detail.

Tamara was remembered during a Civic Celebration of Life Friday, October 9, 2020 on Monument Circle.  The Celebration live-streamed on Facebook Live:
