  Proposed Swine Farm

The September 16, 2014 at the Gary Community Center 7PM was a great success with 23 people in attendance to give their input and assist in the development of survey questions for our area!! 

Watch the paper for the next meeting to be scheduled some time at the end of Oct.

If you are in the 56545 Zip Code, you will receive a survey in the mail from the NWRDC.  Please respond a.s.a.p. so your input is included in our comprehensive city plan.

Cam Fanfulik, the Exec Director of the NWRDC is running the project and the meetings.  He  said according to the 2010 census, there are 37 residents over the age of 65 and 40% or 85 of our residents are under the age of 35years.  That was surprising to most of us.  The general consensus was that most of our over 65 residents are still in the work force, busy with “something” even though they may say they are retired or they at least are in the work force during harvest.   Go seniors!!  We also need to put some focus on the 85 people under 32 years of age to get their input on their future in Gary.

In addition, the community wants to hear from our area farmers, especially those considering retirement.  As we develop zoning and planning for our empty lots, we would really like to know if you want housing within the city when you are ready to move off the farm?  If so, what type etc… the questions are not all developed yet but you get the point.  

There will be plenty more discussions between now and the end of this project to address our roads, what to do with the pines, trail development, potential businesses for our city, the fire hall, how to maintain our historical buildings such as the Legion and the City Hall (old creamery) and much more.   


Current Project...


            You've been telling them for years!

          The Basketball & Tennis Adventure progresses.. 

Talk with Brenda or Morgan Chisholm (the 10 year old that filled out the Kids grant request below...smile!)

Yup...10 year old ... Morgan Chisholm with a lot of help from Savannah & Alex!
(daughter of Mike & Brenda)
Morgan  put in a grant request to the Dekko Foundation to repair our Tennis court in her "Get Out & Play Basketball & Tennis" initiative.  In August Morgan heard back that once her fundraising reaches $10,000, the Dekko Foundation will match it!  The community, the alumnus and outside businesses areresponding to the challenge.  As of Aug 27 over $3000 has been raised!  Morgan is continuing the fundraising with a lot of help from everyone that cares about this project.  So, if you see Morgan, Savannah or Alex out and about...encourage our young community organizers!
