Back To Front Page



Work has been completed on a drainage project in a flood-prone alley of North Calumet Road, between Grant Ave. and Wabash Ave.

So Chesterton Street Commissioner John Schnadenberg reported at Monday night’s meeting of the Stormwater Management Board.

The job was done in-house, Schnadenberg said, and involved the installation of a drain and just under 300 feet of pipe connecting to a stormwater sewer along North Calumet Road.

At some point later this season the gravel alley will be paved, Schnadenberg noted.

Ground Set to Break on Residences

In other business, Stormwater Utility Superintendent Mark O’Dell reported that ground is set to break in the next week or so on the Residences at Coffee Creek, a 110-unit, $20-million senior living facility being developed by Westshore Senior Housing Consultants LCC.

The development will be located immediately south of Sidewalk Road, west of Kelle Drive, north of Village Point, and east of Ind. 49.

O’Dell said that he was scheduled to hold a pre-construction meeting with the developers today.

April in Review

In April the Stormwater Utility ran a $25,458 and in the year-to-date is running a surplus of $92,010.
