MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
On behalf of our members of the Greater La Porte Chamber of Commerce, I welcome you to La Porte, Indiana, a small city of friendly, hardworking people who strive to make this part of Northwest Indiana a great place to grow and prosper. Truly a wonderful mix of both urban and rural influences, the City of La Porte and surrounding townships feature inland lakes, rich fields of grain and livestock, rural and subdivided home sites, modern school facilities, a long list of cultural activities and a convenient transportation network.
For more than 180 years, La Porte’s business community has provided for the people of this goods-producing area, the county and the world. From aviation, steel product, bread, machine tools, farm implements to milk, grain, hogs and fruit to shoes, dry cleaning, and grocery products, La Porte makes and sells it all!
The Plaza by La Porte, grants for the new look of our downtown store fronts, and the building of infrastructure in NewPorte Landing and Thomas Rose Industrial Park constitute some of the new construction and happenings in our great city. Our city also hosts a variety of events in our downtown and other areas throughout the city that we invite you to take part in.
Please browse our website, which provides you a variety of information about the Chamber and its many resources, opportunities within our community and of course, our member businesses. Please do not hesitate to contact us anytime that you think we can be of some assistance. Remember, our door is always open and we are always committed to make La Porte great. Thank you, as always, for your support of the Greater La Porte Chamber of Commerce and remember- tomorrow’s story is yet to be written.
