This master plan rings the industrial city of Gary, Indiana with a natural resources greenway and recreation corridor by connecting the Grand Calumet River, the Little Calumet River, and the Lake Michigan shoreline.  Links with the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore to the east establish the new parkland as part of a continuous regional landscape amenity.  


 


Input form community, municipal, and regional representatives was critical to the development of the plan.  Whenever possible, the proposal restores native ecological communities to create sustainable landscapes.  Bicycle and pedestrian trails are sensitively introduced as active elements with nature.  


 


The comprehensive analysis of existing conditions and proposal of new design ideas produced guidelines for model ordinances to implement the Gary Green Link through new local zoning and landscape management practices.
