The Northwestern Indiana Regional Planning Commission (NIRPC) has drafted a
revised Public Participation Plan, updating the Public Participation Plan
that was adopted in 2007.
A second public meeting to review input received will take place on
Wednesday, July 17 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at NIRPC’s office at 6100
Southport Road in Portage. The first public meeting of the ad hoc
sub-committee took place on July 2.
The findings of the ad hoc sub-committee will then be presented to the NIRPC
Commission. The calendar for Commission meetings may be found on NIRPC’s
The new Plan reflects NIRPC’s continuing commitment to reach out to and
engage residents in the regional planning and decision-making processes
relative to NIRPC’s three planning domains of transportation, economic
development and the environment.
The Plan has been in development for over a year, with the advice and
guidance of stakeholders. The most recent draft Plan was issued in May after
extensive public review. Several NIRPC commissioners have volunteered to sit
on an ad hoc sub-committee to hear concerns of the group Everybody Counts
regarding this Plan.
