Contact: Mitch Barloga, Active Transportation Manager

After 16 months of feedback with Region stakeholders from Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties, the Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) is proud to announce the draft NWI 2050+ is ready for your viewing and comments! This document builds on the main themes of NWI 2050 envisioning a Region which is connected, renewed, united, and vibrant. NWI 2050+ takes a deeper dive into several topics of importance to Northwest Indiana including roadways, transit, freight traffic, active transportation networks, land use patterns, and climate change.

Join us for open houses to learn more about NWI 2050+ and to share your comments. NIRPC staff will be on hand to answer your questions, with a continuous presentation ongoing throughout each open house session. The draft NWI 2050+ will be available to read online at the open houses, with a paper copy also available. The draft NWI 2050+ will be available on NIRPC’s website for review and comments beginning April 5, 2023, with the public comment period ending May 5, 2023.
