Along with the hard working people in the Whitley County community, redevelopment continues to be a contributing factor to the community’s growth and success. The Whitley County Redevelopment Commission identifies problem areas within the community and follows a strategic plan to recover those areas with new development.
The commission can help with planning and/or assistance with real estate acquisition, site preparation and public infrastructure for commercial, industrial and residential development.
