The Porter County Plan Commission will give the public its first glimpse
into the future of the US 6 corridor during two open houses.
With the new hospital at the intersection of US 6 and US 49 set for
completion in the fall of next year, the county is taking steps to ensure
the area is developed in the most effective manner.
An overlay district has been created as part of the county’s unified
development ordinance to regulate the area’s design and usage.
The district will have the authority to control the use of land as well as
things such as landscaping, signs and driveway access.
The first open house will be held on August 31 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at
Liberty Bible Church, 824 N. Calumet Ave. Enter through Door C at the back
of the church.
The county’s consulting team will present a brief overview of the draft
ordinance and answer questions in an informal one-on-one setting.
Public input is encouraged.
A second open house will be held September 21 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the
South Haven Fire Department, 398 W. 700 North.
