INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana State Department of
Agriculture has named a northern Indiana development veteran to lead the
agency’s own economic development and trade initiatives.
The agency said Connie Neininger has been president of the
Cass Logansport Economic Development Organization. Before that, she was the
White County economic development director.
She has been involved with the $1.2 billion Meadow Lake wind
farm, the BioTown USA Development Authority, the construction of two
methane-conversion energy plants and a $350 million iron ore pellet plant in the
White County town of Reynolds.
The Michigan City native also organized the Western Indiana
Sustainable Energy Resource group and chaired the Midwest Indiana Economic
Development region, now known as Indiana’s Technology Corridor.
