The Board of Directors of the Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority (RDA) today passed resolutions establishing the boundaries of seven Transit Development Districts (TDDs) in Northwest Indiana.
The boundaries approved were the Munster/Dyer Main Street boundary; the Munster Ridge Road boundary; the Hammond Gateway Downtown boundary; the East Chicago boundary; the Gary Miller boundary; the Portage/Ogden Dunes boundary; and the Michigan City boundary.
“These districts will enable the RDA to accelerate development and support public infrastructure investment around commuter rail stations in Northwest Indiana,” said Sherri Ziller, President and CEO of the RDA. “We are already seeing hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of projects get underway in Hammond and Michigan City that are directly related to the West Lake and Double Track projects, and in the coming decades we expect billions more in development. This means thousands of new jobs in The Region as well as vastly better access to high-paying careers in Chicago.”
