Eight groups have submitted proposals aimed at attracting business to Gary-Chicago International Airport.

The Times of Munster reports two of the proposals focus more on logistics than passenger service and another recommends the airport be a home for a green jobs training center.

They were among the responses to the Gary-Chicago International Airport Authority request for broad proposals from investors who would be willing to pump at least $100 million into the airport. The airport has long sought to become Chicago's "third airport," but as yet has been unable to do so. Allegiant Air announced in May it plans to stop service to Gary in August.

Members of an ad hoc committee that's working on a public-private partnership at the airport said they are encouraged by the proposals.
