This session will highlight ways in which Ohio planners can draw from the experiences of our neighbors to the west in Indiana and learn from some of their recent successes, including the following: 1. Creating solid partnerships 2. Working across jurisdictions 3. Engaging deeply in community engagment 4. Leaning into the struggle when confronted with obstacles, and 5. Setting your sights high. Ohio and Indiana face many similar trends. The loss of certain segments of industry, demographic change, and the complexities of the urban/rural divide are just some of the commonalities between the two neighboring states. From Muncie to Elkhart, many Indiana communities have found ways to conduct frank conversations about current trends, without allowing those trends to dictate the future.
