Welcome to the latest edition of Northwest Indiana Business Magazine. This issue features the results of our annual Best of Business Awards. Readers got the chance to vote for the best businesses in various categories in Northwest Indiana and Michiana. Some of this year’s honorees share how they overcame the pandemic’s assorted challenges, finding unique solutions. There is a sense of optimism as the crisis is winding down. Tourism experts have begun planning for visitors to return to the Region’s many destinations. This good feeling spills over into construction as there appears to be no end in sight for new commercial projects. While traditional job sectors are performing well, new industries are showing promise, including clean energy. And with economic growth, comes the need for more housing, which also is addressed in this issue. Despite the crisis, daily business continued as seen in our profile of Circles in the Wind in Chesterton and leadership transition stories with community activist Don Babcock and former long-time RDA chief Bill Hanna. Work by nonprofits also seems to be ongoing, but thanks to foundation and community support, those in need continue to be served. Thanks for reading!
