VALPARAISO | The next phase of the ValpoNEXT planning effort will focus on gathering information from businesses in the community.
VALPARAISO | The city collected a lot of ideas during last week's three public "big idea" gathering sessions for its Valpo Next planning effort, but it still hopes to get more.

VALPARAISO | It's been more than a year since The Lakes of Valparaiso was first introduced to the council, and it will be another few months before work can actually begin on the development.
VALPARAISO | The city hopes to go to the Regional Development Authority later this month to seek funds to construct a new Transit Oriented Development downtown.

VALPARAISO | The groundwork for developing a vision of the city's future resumes Thursday with the second meeting of the planning committee.
