Valpo City Attorney Named To RDA Board

city of Valparaiso Mayor's office

Valparaiso city attorney and former economic development director Patrick Lyp has been named to the Board of the Regional Development Authority.   He was named to the board by Governor Eric Holcomb.

Since it was established in 2005, the RDA has been the catalyst for numerous regional projects, including the completed runway expansion at  Gary/Chicago International Airport, and the enhancement of the regional Lake Michigan shoreline.  

Currently the RDA, in partnership with  NICTD and state government, is at the forefront of two transformative commuter rail projects -- Double Tracking and West Lake Corridor -- and the complementary transit-oriented developments.

Lyp has been a speaker on the subject of legal ethics and is a recipient of the Friends of Mental Health Association award.


Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
