KICK-OFF OF 2019 LOGANSPORT RE-IMAGINED SPEAKER SERIES RESCHEDULED TO FEBRUARY 13

Logansport Re-Imagined announces the return of the LRI Speaker Series!

The first session of 2019 is a collaborative effort between Logan’s Landing and the Logansport Planning Department, and is scheduled from 5:30-7 p.m. Wednesday, February 13 at the State Theatre in downtown Logansport.

More than 100 Logansport residents participated in Logansport’s HCI Community Forum and identified downtown development as one of the top three Quality of Life items critical to making Logansport an attractive place to live in the future. Participants also identified a thriving downtown as part of their vision for a thriving economy. Additionally, they asked for more communication with the public regarding opportunities.

During the first session of the Logansport Re-Imagined Speaker Series on February 13, attendees will be able to learn about a variety of different programs currently available in Logansport, including the Logan’s Landing Facade Program, the new Commercial Exterior Improvement program offered by the Logansport Redevelopment Commission, the sidewalk 50/50 program for businesses and the Historic Renovation Grant Program through the Office of Community and Rural Affairs. The City of Logansport is also in the early stages of determining the community’s interest in applying for the Main Street Revitalization Program (or MSRP) grant offered by the Office of Community and Rural Affairs. Eligible projects through this program typically include downtown infrastructure rehabilitation, streetscape activities, and fa├žade renovations. In addition, Logan’s Landing will provide information about opportunities for volunteers to serve on downtown revitalization committees or get involved in events like the Taste of Cass County. Representatives from these organizations, along with members of the Historic Preservation Commission, will be available to answer questions.

Those who own property in downtown Logansport or in one of the city’s TIF districts are encouraged to attend, along with anyone who would like to learn more about ways to get involved in efforts to work together to make Logansport a place where we are all proud to live, work and play.

Future events in the Logansport Re-Imagined Speaker Series will focus on other topics of interest identified through the Logansport Re-Imagined process.
