OFFICE OF THE MAYOR
Welcome to Lake Station: Northwest Indiana’s best-kept secret. Thank you for visiting our site. With a population of a little more than 12,000, a rich history, and quick proximity to 2 major city’s and the Indiana Dunes National Park that runs along the majestic shore of Lake Michigan, Lake Station is a wonderful place to call home.
So what makes our Town so special? You’ll probably get a different answer from each of our citizens but I personally believe it comes down to this: a diverse group of citizens pulling for the common good to build a community that will be a model of livability, sustainability, and creativity all the while protecting the natural resources and beauty which we hold at a high value.
We stand for the preservation of what has come and what has been given to our area while appreciating that the future is now and continued growth will happen. Our citizens appreciate and desire wildlife, rivers, open spaces, green spaces, and agriculture. We pursue ways to stay healthy and connected. We encourage volunteerism and celebrate when we find ways to get things done without huge expense to taxpayers. We look out for one another. We have fun.
The City of Lake Station is committed to working with the community to ensure that the City effectively serves its citizens, neighborhoods, and businesses to help all succeed while nurturing our strong sense of place.
I warmly welcome you to our beautiful city. Stop on by at City Hall and stay awhile; I know you’ll be glad you did.
