Rensselaer will soon become a more walkable community if a new crowdfunding campaign reaches its goal to raise $50,000 by December 29th. The campaign, called “A Walkable Brookside Park” is being led by the Jasper Newton Foundation and is using the CreatINg Places program sponsored by the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority. The goal is to connect existing trails around Brookside Park. If the campaign reaches its goal, the project will receive a matching grant of $50,000 from IHCDA.
