An auction is set for next month involving 320 acres of land owned by the Indianapolis Airport Authority. The properties range from residential to farm to industrial sites.
In all, there are 30 tracts of land in seven locations. The land is just a portion of the 1,000 acres the authority had previously announced would go back on the market to be put "back into productive use for the community." Around 2,000 other acres has been set aside by the authority to be permanently protected. Officials say by selling the land, the new economic activity will generate $1.7 million in annual revenue.
