Briefly Speaking

Levon Johnson


By Levon Johnson
Chamber President/CEO

The Gift of persistence, people, and patience

This past week our county was awarded two grants for grade separations. The investment in our county is exciting as we continue the progress of growing our economic region and community vibrancy. It is notable that while there was concern the state would not grant funding to both projects, one city and one county, the state looked at the merit of the applications and made the decision to award both projects despite being in the same county.

Ultimately the goal is to more safely and efficiently move people and goods throughout our city, county, and region.

The Transportation Council of your Greater Elkhart Chamber of Commerce has been a proponent for these projects for years. The first policy mention of grade separations was over 20 years ago. The persistence of this group of people and the amount of patience shown to support this work finally nearing  fruition is indicative of the work of our councils here at the Chamber.

This is the last Briefly Speaking of 2018, so your Staff and Board of the Chamber would like to wish everyone a positive and productive time as you spend time with family and friends this holiday season.
