The Anderson City Council has approved the rezoning of 520 acres of land. Our partners at The Herald Bulletin report the city is looking to market the property, which includes an Indiana Municipal Power Agency plant, for future industrial projects.
The council’s vote included an additional 120 acres that could be included in the future, according to the publication.
Anderson Economic Development Department Executive Director Greg Winkler says the development of the land could lead to new jobs.
“We anticipate a technology sophisticated company,” Winkler told The Herald Bulletin. “The available electricity makes it attractive to those types of companies. The rezoning enables us to pursue opportunities with investors interested in the property.”
Winkler says the Corporation for Economic Development in Anderson has an option to purchase the properties.
