5-Year Master Plan for New Chicago Parks Department Public Meeting

Save the date! January 24th from 7pm to 8pm (or later depending on attendance) we will be holding another public hearing for the citizens of New Chicago, Hobart, Lake Station, and Unincorporated Hobart to be able to speak regarding our 5-Year Master Plan that will be submitted to the Indiana DNR.

Creating this master plan will help us be able to go after grants at the state and federal levels to help fund improvements for the parks in our town. To do this though, we need your help!

We look forward to seeing citizens from any of those areas at this public hearing or any of our monthly meetings.

Thank you for taking the time to consider coming to this.

Joe Bachman

New Chicago Parks Board President

Water Main Break

There is a water main break on the west end of Lake Station in the New Chicago Water System. The break has been found but it will still be a couple of hours for repairs. Residents in the area of 29th, Utah, Oklahoma and other surrounding streets may experience low water pressure over the next several hours while this is fixed.
