Marquette Action Plan

The Marquette Action Plan will identify land across Northwest Indiana’s lakefront that can be feasibly transformed into new publicly-accessible areas for conservation, recreation, amenities, and livable communities. Since public access possesses different meanings to different members of the public, the Marquette Action Plan will also define different categories of access across the lakefront, and identify a means for accommodating those different uses on a region-wide level. The plan will provide recommendations for expanding and improving public access on sub area level, and in addition, will identify finance and maintenance structures that can be employed to preserve the lakefront’s various assets.
