Back To Front Page



The Chesterton Redevelopment Commission has approved this season’s paving and sidewalk projects in the town’s original tax increment financing district.

At their meeting Monday night, members voted unanimously to approve a list of seven projects at a total estimated cost of $318,795.

The paving list, as submitted by Street Commissioner John Schnadenberg:

--Sand Creek Drive North from Sandpiper Drive to Michael Drive (cost: $48,000).

--Aherns Drive between Sand Creek Drive North and Roberts Road ($11,000).

--Roberts Road from Indian Boundary Road to Michael Drive ($58,821).

--North Calumet Road from Ind. 49 to the town’s corporate limits, near the North Porter County Conservation Club ($58,920).

--And Dickinson Road from 1100N to the roundabout at Rail Road ($124,054).

And the sidewalk list:

--The west side of South Calumet Road from Broadway south to Datagraphics ($8,000).

--And the east side of South Calumet Road from Porter Ave. to Jefferson Ave. ($10,000).

As Schnadenberg noted, these projects are all in the TIF district and will be funded with tax increment financing moneys. There will be other paving and sidewalk projects elsewhere in town, however, funded through a 50/50 Community Crossings state infrastructure grant as well as through the remaining proceeds of $1.8-million general obligation bond issued in 2018.
