TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - A community initiative has revamped a western Indiana city's website in an effort to polish the area's image.
The Tribune-Star reports that The Haute Initiative announced the improved terrehaute.com Tuesday as a measure to showcase the Terre Haute and Vigo County community's offerings to residents, college students and prospective businesses.
The initiative aims to enhance the community's reputation and drive economic development by providing an online presence and video content.
President Mark Gibson says the grass-roots initiative is supported by local business, government, education and economic development entities.
The website offers community information such as things to do, schools, restaurants and lodging. It also directs visitors to city and county government websites.
Gibson says he hopes the initiative will help overcome any perception problems the community may have.
