Indiana Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann today was in LaPorte for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to designate the downtown LaPorte Main Street Association as an Indiana Main Street Community. Ellsperman says they were very pleased to now include LaPorte among the over one-hundred Main Street communities across the state. Ellespermann says Main Streets are the life-blood of our communities, and commended LaPorte for their focus on the Indiana Main Street Initiative, which she called a key way Indiana supports local communities in their efforts to revitalize, restore and develop their downtown areas.
