As Section 4 of Interstate 69 from Crane to Bloomington nears completion, many are asking how best to take advantage of the finished highway.
The Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) will offer the Southwest Central Indiana region an opportunity to advance these conversations. It will provide recommendations for enhancing relationships between surrounding counties and NSA Crane through planning for issues such as roadway capacity, infrastructure planning, economic development and many other compatibility factors.
Upcoming public information sessions will give citizens an opportunity to ensure that the study responds to the issues of greatest importance for the surrounding community. The public is encouraged to attend these sessions to learn more about this planning study and provide input on the issues to be addressed.
The JLUS initiative is being led by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA), in cooperation with RADIUS Indiana; the counties of Daviess, Greene, Lawrence, Martin and Sullivan; and supported by agencies and organizations — including Indiana University — in the region.
The three upcoming JLUS public meetings are scheduled for:
Sullivan County: Monday, August 10 at 7 p.m. at the 4H Fairgrounds in Sullivan.
Lawrence County: Tuesday, August 11 at 5 p.m. at Stellar Plaza on 16th St. in Bedford.
Daviess, Greene and Martin counties: Wednesday, August 12 at 6 p.m. at Westgate Academy in Odon.
