The public is invited to attend an open house on the redevelopment of Michigan City's Lake Michigan lakefront.  City officials say they want to re-establish the city as a pre-eminent lakefront destination community, capitalizing on the diamond-shaped lakefront gateway study area bounded by the shoreline, Blue Chip Casino, downtown and Lighthouse Premium Outlets.  The open house is Wednesday April 16th  (6:30-8:30 pm) at Michigan City Senior Center 2.  
The community is encouraged to meet with the consultant, Hitchcock Design Group, and Project Steering Committee members, one-on-one, in an informal setting, to discuss the preliminary gateway implementation strategy. City representatives and Hitchcock Design Group will make a brief presentation of their preliminary recommendations at 7:00pm. After the presentation, the consultant and Project Steering Committee members will be available to discuss the project and receive public input.
City officials say by focusing on priority projects, the strategy will include a series of public improvements and initiatives intended to create more attractions, improve the visitor experience, and stimulate private investment in Michigan City producing more jobs and more tax revenue.  The city expects the consultant’s services and the delivery of the final strategy document to be completed late this spring.
