Last night our team attended the Northwest Indiana Forum Legislative Affairs Program, featuring Rep. Pete Viscloscky (D-IN). What a terrific bi-partisan effort to provide leadership on what could be the most important economic development opportunity this decade.
Green Pointe is emphatically in favor of the extension of the south shore. We were pleased to voice our support along with so many other leaders.
The opportunity to extend the South Shore Commuter Rail into Munster, Lowell, and Valparaiso is key to the next decade of growth and job creation.
Now the legislative leadership will be attempting to build concensus downstate for some form of tax to pay the remaining $350 million it will take to locally match the $650 million already on the table from RDA and Federal funds.
Chicago South Shore Connection, it's about time.
