WELCOME TO BEAUTIFUL ANGOLA, INDIANA
The City of Angola, Indiana is the gateway to the Northeast Corner of Indiana. Because of our 101 lakes, Pokagon State Park, Trine University, a nationally recognized K-12 school system and a hardworking, well educated workforce, we are becoming a destination community for tourists, businesses and industries.
Our downtown has maintained its historical New England style architectural look while at the same time we have gone through a transformation with our ongoing Downtown Revitalization Program. With the awarding of two different grants from the Office of Community and Rural Affairs and the Indiana Department of Transportation we have been able to do one million dollars worth of upgrades to the sidewalks around our historic monument with brick pavers, new lighting, new flower boxes and shrubbery as well as new tables and chairs sitting outside of our businesses for those visiting our community.
Trine University has invested over eight million dollars into their new initiative, Innovation One. Innovation One is being developed to support regional businesses, entrepreneurs, and the public sector by assisting in research and development, business and other engineering and technical needs. This also allows students to have real, hands-on experience into the world of business and entrepreneurship while still in a classroom environment.
At the same time the City of Angola has announced the formation of the Angola Investment Fund that will be used to help entrepreneurs get their businesses started as well as helping businesses and industries already located here to be able to expand their businesses.
These two projects, although totally separate, will work together to show the country and the world that the City of Angola is open for business. These projects align perfectly with the Steuben County Economic Development Corporation and the Northeast Regional Partnership objectives in trying to help create and grow businesses in Northeast Indiana as well as to better education our workforce.
The City of Angola is also working with the adult vocational group, Freedom Academy, in establishing an adult learning center in the City of Angola. The City has purchased the old Angola Lumber Company with plans to start an adult learning center at this location.
Cameron Memorial Community Hospital is well into construction with the completion date for construction to be around the end of August 2014. We are all excited about the completion of this project.
Hobby Lobby has just announced that they will be soon occupying the old Scott’s store in Country Fair Shopping Center out north of town. At the same time Love’s Travel Plaza has begun moving dirt at its location on the southwest side of I-69 and US Hwy 20. They expect their project to be completed in the summer of 2014. The iMAN project of installing fiber optics around the county is almost completed. This project has been followed by communities all over the United States and could end up being an example as how wireless construction can be completed in small communities like ours without having to break the bank to do it.
As you can imagine Angola, Indiana is a dynamic community. We ask you to take the time to come visit us and see for yourself why we are known as the community that is “Working Together to Make Visions a Reality”.
