"Do you believe Northwest Indiana is a good place to live?"
Region views on Northwest Indiana
Shawn Kanne, Gary | "Yes, but it has its limitations. Younger people are making an effort to turn things around, and that's what's needed."
Sara Trevino, Chicago Heights | "Yes. Their taxes are lower, and there are a lot of nice areas to live in. They have a lot of greenery and wildlife. There's nowhere to go in Chicago Heights because of crime."
Kevin Smith, Miller | "Excellent. Midwesterners are full of ambition and drive. If you offer opportunity, they would be willing to take advantage."
Tony Rondinelli, Hobart | "I think it's stagnant. It doesn't seem to fulfill hopefulness. All our major roads run along the lakefront, so people tend to pass everything else by."
Maria Weldon, Chesterton | "Overall, yes. I like Chesterton and Portage. They're close to Chicago, and it's an easy commute. It's an overall good place, and I'm happy to be here."
Joann Galoozis, Merrillville | "Yes and no. Jobs aren't plentiful at this time. We do have the four seasons and the lake, which you need to respect."
