Future planning for La Porte's downtown area got underway last night.

The focus was on the downtown, New Porte Landing and the area surrounding

Clear Lake.

Helping lead the discussion was Kathleen Duffy......with the Smith Group out of

Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Ideas were sought on a wide range of things like what can be offered to make those areas

more family friendly and promote healthier living.

After a 45 minute presentation...audience members were divided into groups

to further their discussion on how to improve those areas.

Former mayor Leigh Morris has proposed strategic planning like this for a long time and

welcomed the approach.

He said New Porte Landing, improvements downtown and other investments give the city more

to work with for promoting further revitalization.
