The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) and Indiana
Landmarks would like to invite those interested to participate in a series
of public open houses regarding current efforts to update the Marquette
Plan, Northwest Indiana’s Vision for Lakeshore Reinvestment.
These open houses will be held as follows:
Tuesday, Nov. 12: 5:30 - 7 p.m. at City Hall Operations Center, 100 E.
Michigan Blvd #2, Michigan City, IN 46360.
Monday, Nov. 18: 5:30 - 7 p.m. at Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning
Commission: 6100 South Port Road, Portage, IN 46368.
Congressman Pete Visclosky, the creative force behind the Marquette Plan has
said “Sweeping changes will not come overnight. Nor can they be dictated by
one person or one governmental body. We in Northwest Indiana must sit
together as a unified community and reach a consensus on our future.”
Since 2005, many shoreline cities and towns have invested in projects and
policies to implement the Marquette Plan, with the support of the Regional
Development Authority, the Indiana DNR, and many other regional partners.
