The Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce is providing an update on its “See You in Terre Haute 2025 Community Plan.” The chamber says the plan, which launched a year ago, is designed to address a number of issues, including declines in population and per capital personal income.
Steve Holman, community plan co-chair and chief executive officer of Union Health in Terre Haute, says the effort has made early accomplishments in several key areas.
“It’s been a much different year than expected, that’s for sure, but the positive is that work for the Community Plan and Terre Haute has continued despite all the roads blocks,” said Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett, who also serves as community plan co-chair. “We’re encouraged and feel good about the work that’s been accomplished and look forward to forging ahead.”
The plan is centered around six pillars: economic development, quality of life, talent attraction, health and wellness, and infrastructure.
The chamber says some of the accomplishments include its merger with Launch Terre Haute earlier this year, which it says will develop a stronger business hub and resources in west central Indiana.
Another milestone being celebrated is west central Indiana being named a 21st Century Talent Region by the Indiana Office of Career Connections and Talent.
The chamber says plans are now underway for a variety of other items, including beautification projects at I-70 interchanges, a new comprehensive Community Asset Guide to highlight the region’s strengths and attractions for those looking to relocate, and a proposed “Reimagined Riverfront Development” near Fairbanks Park.
