60+ reasons people love Logansport, Indiana

Logansport Re-Imagined was developed when Logansport participated in the Hometown Collaboration Initiative offered through the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs, Purdue University and Ball State University. (You can read more about that here.)

In April 2018, Logansport’s HCI team launched Logansport Re-Imagined as their capstone for the program. The local need identified by Logansport’s HCI team was for the people of Logansport to become more actively engaged in creating and promoting a place where they are proud to live, work and play.

At the kickoff for Logansport Re-Imagined in April 2018, attendees were invited to share reasons they love Logansport. As part of Logansport Re-Imagined’s participation in the Cass County 4-H Fair, the team used the “I Love Logansport” cards again and asked visitors to the Merchants Buildings to share their input, which became the backdrop for Logansport Re-Imagined’s fair booth.

The month of February seemed like a good time to revisit some of the reasons people shared back in the early days of Logansport Re-Imagined.

Here are a few things people said in 2018 … what would you add in 2024?
