The Ports of Indiana Commission is pumping $1.7 million into its Portage facility to improve the rail and sewer infrastructure. That's important work to keep the deepwater facility viable.
East Chicago is vigorously pursuing its proposal for a new $400 million shipping port on Lake Michigan, just as Gary hopes to get a hearing its own proposal for Buffington Harbor.
When casino claim-to-fames Donald Trump and Don Barden opened their adjacent gaming properties in Gary along Buffington Harbor in June 1996, the two agreed their shared spaces, connected by a common pavilion, need a steakhouse as a shining jewel of dining.
Ever since the Marquette Plan was implemented in 2005, the mayors of lakefront communities have supported its mission of reclaiming the Lake Michigan shoreline for public use, just as Chicago has done.
Buffington Harbor should be used by industries, not as a recreational area, Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson told a regional planning commission on Thursday.
Dozens of ships, from barges to schooners, ferries to sloops, have met their fate on Lake Michigan's waters.
EAST CHICAGO | After a year of "rolling up our sleeves and getting to work," East Chicago Mayor Anthony Copeland, now with a four-year mandate from voters, said 2012 will be "a year of purpose" in addressing the city's long-standing challenges.
