Rust Belt Resurgence
The Times Media Co. is leading a multi-year revitalization initiative -- targeting the city of Gary in Northwest Indiana -- to bring together community leaders, regional stakeholders, national experts, and state and federal representatives to develop an investment strategy for economic recovery. The effort was launched in 2010 as part of the Gary and Region Investment Project, which has tapped the Chicago-based Metropolitan Planning Council as a partner. Reporter Bowdeya Tweh and Times staffers are visiting cities in the Midwest and on the East Coast to identify and share best practices in community revitalization and economic development and show people in the region what life is like in these places.
