Regional Development Authority
If I had a nickel for every study commissioned by the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District and the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission, I’d be a very rich guy.
The Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District board of trustees hopes a new strategic business plan will benefit House Bill 1450, legislation the General Assembly will look at during summer session on how the NICTD is governed.
GARY | Mark Turner, of Crown Point, lost his job when Wonder Bread went out of business in November.
EAST CHICAGO | The city and SEH of Indiana will hold a public meeting Tuesday on the proposed lakefront revitalization initiative.
HEBRON | Reaping almost $600,000 from the sale of the use of its water tower and of a cellphone tower on town property made last year a profitable year for Hebron.
Another small piece of the planned Dunes-Kankakee Trail can be built this summer now that Porter County has agreed to maintain it after it's built.
GARY | A diverse group of partners gathered Tuesday to announce a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to develop green stormwater management practices in Marquette Park.
INDIANAPOLIS | Northwest Indiana's legislative delegation has elected state Rep. Charlie Brown, D-Gary, as their leader for the 2013 session.
SCHERERVILLE | Northwest Indiana is no closer to consolidating transportation now than it was years ago.
INDIANAPOLIS | Gov. Mitch Daniels declined to take a position Thursday on whether the state should continue paying $10 million a year beyond 2015 to support the work of the Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority.
PORTAGE | The superintendent of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is thinking big for the future of the park. Really big.
VALPARAISO | The city expects to be more than halfway through the "Super 17" stormwater project list by the end of 2013, including the first phase of the Chautauqua Park flood relief system.
In 2000, the Regional Transportation Authority was formed to build an efficient transportation system for Lake County. With its location near Lake Michigan, the Gary airport, access to commuter trains and a bus system, Lake County should be an unparalleled transportation center.
INDIANAPOLIS | Gov. Mitch Daniels this week appointed two new members to the commission that oversees Little Calumet River levees in Lake County and reappointed two Valparaiso residents to other state boards.
On Oct. 9, Northwest Indiana will be provided with another opportunity to assess where it’s going and, perhaps, how it ought to proceed with respect to several quality of life indicators.
HAMMOND | Improvements to the tennis courts at Forsythe Park are under way.
PORTAGE | More economic development in all its phases is on the horizon for the seven-county region following action Tuesday by the Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority.
Yep. William Shakespeare asked that question about 500 years ago, admittedly in a different context.
With National Trail Day being last Saturday (and with the immaculate weather I certainly hope you enjoyed a trail or two), I would like to focus on a major regional initiative.
Boy, I hope I'm around in 2040 because I really want to see the "vibrant, revitalized, accessible and united region."
