Officials in Tipton County are considering a plan for a multi-million-dollar mixed-use development along U.S. 31. The Kokomo Tribune reports the project would include at least one hotel, light industrial space and a travel plaza, among other features.
The unnamed developer is seeking a rezoning of the more than 70-acre property at 31 and State Road 28 to a planned unit development, according to the publication. The project is also slated to feature a bank, a MedCheck, a recreational vehicle stopover, restaurants and a dog park.
Matt Skelton, an attorney representing the developer, says the project is estimated to cost about $50 million, though the final investment total is still being determined.
If the rezoning request is approved by the Tipton County Board of Commissioners, the project will still face future approvals, including an Indiana 28 entrance approval from the Indiana Department of Transportation.
Skelton says plans call for the project to take about one to two years to complete, though a timeline for groundbreaking is still not known.
