The See You In Terre Haute Community Plan provides a collective vision and long-term plan to develop a thriving and prosperous city, county, and region in Terre Haute, Vigo County, and West Central Indiana. The Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce and its Board of Directors, along with key stakeholders in every sector, are working every day to advance the major goals of the plan, halting population decline and reversing the trend of declining per capita personal income.
The work of the Community Plan falls under six pillars: Tourism, Economic Development, Quality of Life, Health & Wellness, Infrastructure, and Talent Attraction/Retention. Launched in 2019, the See You In Terre Haute Community Plan has experienced a tremendous amount of success, with major accomplishments such as the first round of READI grants, the opening of the Terre Haute Convention Center, West Central Indiana Business Hub, and advocacy to the state legislature on a variety of issues.
Funding for projects prioritized in the plan has exceeded $500 million, and every day more activity happens that moves our community forward. The Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce constantly evaluates the Community Plan's progress.
Halting population decline and increasing per capita personal income are the two key goals of the See You In Terre Haute Community Plan. A comprehensive community dashboard supported by the Wabash Valley Community Foundation, the City of Terre Haute, Vigo County, and the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce is under development and will be released by the end of 2023.
