Elkhart working to attract 500 families

Posted:

It's a push to get 500 families moving into Elkhart. The Greater Elkhart Chamber of Commerce is challenging the community to spread the word of what Elkhart offers and help make the city a place to call home. The chamber found that more than 20,000 people commute to Elkhart County for work daily and the president wants those people to find their home here too.

"I think part of it is trying to make it that when professionals move to the area that they don't automatically go to a different community that they would consider Elkhart," says Kyle Hannon, Chamber of Commerce president.

The chamber is working with organizations in the community to make Elkhart a more livable city that will attract those professionals. They also encourage current residents to spread the word on why they have made Elkhart home.
