City ‘demonstrated tremendous’ public, private cooperation
TERRE HAUTE — Dozens of Terre Haute community leaders gathered downtown Tuesday morning to learn their city has been named “Community of the Year” by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
Business, education, health care and government leaders crowded into the Wabash Avenue offices of the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce to hear Kevin Brinegar, president of the Indiana Chamber, make the big announcement.
The 20 Hoosier cities that have won the honor since 1990 have “all demonstrated tremendous public and private sector cooperation, working toward the ultimate goal of improving both the area’s business climate and the quality of life for residents,” Brinegar said. Past winners have included Indianapolis, Noblesville, Anderson, Evansville, Valparaiso, Muncie and greater Lafayette. “Now, we add Terre Haute to that list,” he said.
