One bazillion percent agreed.

I did some digging though and it looks like that while certain states info has been released - it was by no means ALL of the census info pertaining to those states. Just preliminary info was rolled out and deeper numbers will come out within the next few months.

But then again, I could be totally wrong.

This is all excellent news, and thanks for being on top of it!...Regarding the Lake Business Center, one of my friend's mom is a marketing agent and there is a rumor (just a rumor) that two of the restaurants Munster is supposed to get (when the Lake Business Center redevelops into a lifestyle town center) is The Cheesecake Factory & Maggiano's. These are just rumors, but these two restaurants have expressed interest in the area as of recently, and I would just die if they came here. It is long overdue! The future is looking EXTRA good for Munster!

Default Even more great redevelopment news!

In addition to the Munster Shops, this article introduces new proposed redevelopments right across the street!

New commercial developments sprout along town’s major street

Here are two other development articles as well:

Lake Business Center renovation to begin soon - (this is the Munster Town Center project!)

Plan for Grade Separation at Calumet Avenue & 45th Street moving ahead - (this is LONG overdue!!)

And more news:

Munster continues to upgrade park facilities as quality of life asset

Public, parochial schools rank high in assessment tests

Hospitals, clinic, specialty centers, and physicians abound - (not really news but still very nice to see!)

Here is also a nice article that basically states why the town remains an attractive choice (in a nutshell):

Rich history leading to prosperous future

Default 45th/Calumet Grade Separation

Here is some renderings of the project...it is much more elaborate than I thought!

The Munster faithful always come back to the same reason that their town is superior....the schools. And I could understand their argument if the other schools (Crown Point and Lake Central) were subpar, but they're not. They are all very good school systems, they're just not recognized as much as Munster. There's also a lot of history there that the other schools don't have yet. I think it's safe to say, in a matter of a few years, you'll start to see Lake Central and Crown Point outpace Munster in school reputation.

Good post by the way SoHoVe....well said.

OPSMAN
A few years has passed...While Crown Point schools have become more recognized than they were before, neither CP nor LC schools have "outpaced Munster in school reputation" or scores....Also, as far as bing weak in retail, look at all of the projects going on! Sorry, but I've been waiting to post this.

Great post Opsman. You make some very good points. Munster is not that far from 80/94 and I would say is not as hillbilly as some of the other towns mentioned. But things start to get hillbilly fairly quick once you go south of 80/94. And all of the indiana towns south of 80/94 are overglorified hillbilly havens to one degree or another. Comparing which hillbilly town is better is just pointless. As Opsman so rightly pointed out, the huge decomposing garbage dump in munster smells awful. It's so bad that I roll my window up whenever I drive past it. Now being the hillbilly area that munster is. There is no shortage of people who feel right at home living in subdivisions located right next door and across the street from the huge decomposing garbage dump. Gross! They must enjoy the smell and the air pollution that the garbage dump emits 24 hour a day. Now I am sure some delusional poster will come on here and try to tell me how it's no big deal living next to a decomposing garbage dump. And how this is totally normal behavoir.

Again this just points out how much of a dump northwest indiana is south of 80/94. As I already pointed out the only gems in northwest indiana are the well to do beach towns located along lake michigan. Those residents live completely seperated from the rest of northwest indiana. And you have many chicago and chicago suburban residents who own vacation homes in the beach communities. Even some university of chicago professors and personel have lived in many of the beach communities for decades. Totally different class of people living in Miller beach (annexed far east part of gary), ogden dunes, dune acres, beverly shores, and long beach are the real gems of northwest indiana. Not hillbilly country south of 80/94. I am still trying to figure out why people are attempting to make these towns devoid of anything worth discussing sound like vibrant upwardly mobile communities. You are only kidding yourself, and are completely delusional.

How so? Point to some specific examples. Or even one. Define hillbilly, and explain how "anything south of 80-94" fits that definition. Otherwise you make no sense.

Lol. More mindlessness. I'm sure you think that all the areas NORTH of 80-94 are so much better. Riiiight.

Please stop trolling this forum. You have done nothing but make strange and inaccurate statements based on no actual or coherent data. If all the towns south of 80-94 are "devoid of anything worth discussing" why do you insist on still bringing them up?
