Councilman Dan Whitten is leading the charge, claiming the RDA is a tax grab to benefit Lake County.
The expectation when the county approved an increase in its economic development income tax to support the RDA was that South Shore passenger rail service would be extended to Valparaiso.
As tough as they are, the fiscal crises that many of our cities and towns are facing can be a blessing in disguise. They may help us realize sooner rather than later that a "business as usual" approach simply won't work any longer in Northwest Indiana.
Gus Olympidis, one of the original RDA members, says he isn't interested in being reappointed. That leaves it up to the Porter County Council and the county commissioners to choose someone who will serve on the RDA.
The new park deserves the RDA's support because it's the first project being done as part of the Marquette Plan.
