Indiana Dunes faces threats of private development

In 2012 the Indiana state legislature entered into an agreement with a company that would restore the 85-year old limestone pavilion that sits on the beach at Indiana Dunes State Park. Now plans to expand the building’s footprint with an additional glass and steel conference center are moving forward. The state of Indiana calls it the perfect public/private partnership that will bring even more visitors and revenue to the popular park. Environmental groups are calling it a potential disaster for migrating birds and people wanting peace and quiet. WBEZ’s Northwest Indiana reporter Michael Puente tells us what we the state might gain, and lose from the project. (Flickr/feministjulie)
