(LaPorte, IN) - Downtown LaPorte is seeing more private investment. A building in the 700 block of Lincolnway beside Plaza 618 was recently purchased by Dudley Beyler. Mayor Tom Dermody says there’s room for three commercial spaces in the property now being prepared for some type of reuse. “One of the things we want to have is development and improvement so we’re excited about this,” he said. What might be going inside that structure is not known.
