Seen and Heard: Local businesses have been posting Dunes Action signs

Back To Front Page


Seen and Heard Numerous local businesses have been hosting Dunes Action! petitions against the proposed banquet center at the Indiana Dunes State Park beach, for their customers to sign. This week many of those same businesses began displaying yard signs as well. Here Laura Verheaghe, Red Cup Cafe owner, places a NO Banquet Center on the Beach sign in the front windowbox of Red Cup Cafe, at 115 Broadway, Chesterton. Business owners who have sought the signs are concerned about the process by which the contract was agreed to by the DNR, the unfair advantage the Pavilion Partners will enjoy at the lakefront and the possible economic drain on local businesses, among other issues.
