NIRPC Press Release: 2050 Plan Fall Pop-Up Event Series

September 24, 2018

NIRPC to hold 2050 Plan Fall Pop-Up Event Series

The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) is currently working on the development of the 2050 Long-Range Plan. NIRPC is the metropolitan planning organization and council of governments for Lake, Porter, and LaPorte counties and our planning focus areas are transportation, environment, and economic development. The 2050 Plan examines our future including trends and influences to identify strategies and investments to achieve the vision for the region. This plan will guide us around the actions we need to start taking now to be prepared for the year 2050.

For our next round of public engagement, we are holding pop-up events across the region beginning October 4th. Our pop-up events will include information as well as activities that residents can participate in and learn more about potential transportation investments. The input of residents will assist in identifying investments for our region to pursue to achieve the vision for the year 2050.
