The town of Schererville has approved financial incentives for a proposed retail development that could create up to 150 jobs. Our partners at The Times of Northwest Indiana report construction on the first phase of the Shops on Main could begin next month.
The economic development commission, redevelopment commission and town council unanimously signed off on $19 million in bonds for the project that would be paid back from tax
The $100 million development still needs additional subdivision approval before work can get underway.
Highland-based Boyer Construction Group Corp. is one of the companies collaborating on the process. Bruce Boyer tells The Times the initial phase could be complete in just over one year once approvals are met.
