Local officials will be bending some ears tomorrow at the state capitol.

A five year extension is being sought for the city's urban enterprize


Many years ago.....the state gave communities permission to form

urban enterprize zones.....to offer financial incentives to spur new investment

and combat blight.

A previous extension for LaPorte is about to expire.

Bert Cook is executive director of the Greater LaPorte Economic Development


He says the zone has made a very noticeable difference in the downtown.....

The urban enterprize zone has several financial incentive programs including one

that has resulted in new facods on more than 15 buildings downtown the past

two years.
