Valpo Mayor Costas begins next Costas Plan

After finishing many of the goals of his first plan, Mayor Costas will now prepare the details of the next 4 year plan. He suggests though that he will be gaining input from new council members and community leaders prior to nailing down all the details.

Valpo mayor lays out plan for next 4 years

VALPARAISO | The downtown, the environment and sidewalks will be among the
issues the city focuses on for the next four years, Mayor Jon Costas
said.

During the next couple of months, Costas will be drafting the
agenda for his second term and circulating it to get input from the public and
other sources before finalizing it by the end of March, he said.
Becoming more eco-friendly is something the city started with the formation of
the Energy Task Force, the switch to biofuels, the growth of the recycling
program and increased tree planting, but Costas said residents want the city to
take a leadership role in promoting energy conservation and other "green"
initiatives.

Why so few blogger in Northwest Indiana?

I have to believe that Northwest Indiana is just plain under-utilizing the blog phenomenon for business development.

Local business blogging beyond real estate
from TRANSPARENT REAL ESTATE (www.TransparentRE.com) by Pat Kitano

I have to agree with this post by Pat, but sadly even the real estate professionals in Northwest Indiana are few and far between.

Trust me, it drops off pretty quick after these five Active Rain bloggers. I'm sure I've missed some Point 2 Agent sites, and perhaps a blogger.com site somewhere. Send me the link if so.

But I'll stand by my original suggestion that it's time the Northwest Indiana real estate professionals join the 2004 web 2.0 phenomenon, or fear being left far behind when web 3.0 hits next year!
