An explosion of economic growth is in the works across Indiana’s Elkhart County, a report said.

On Monday (Sept. 20), county commissioners signed a $10-million tax phase-in, extension of the road agreement, and zoning adjustments to accommodate others.

The commissioners approved an arrangement between local governments and the developers to expand C.R. 4, from C.R. 17 to C.R. 19. The agreement also seeks to extend Elkhart municipal sewer and water lines to the entire area and provide the anonymous company a tax-phase-in.

The working title of the project will be “Project Winnie.” The company was described as being shipping-related and not having any connection with the RV industry.

The plan involves building a 5-story warehouse and a distribution center, which will span 100 acres in Elkhart East Industrial Park. The company plans to invest $100 million into the facility and add another $100 million in equipment.

Commercial real estate firm Ambrose Group has led the project by obtaining approvals from the county agency for the developer.

However, the purpose for which the property will be constructed hasn’t been disclosed. Elkhart County Economic Development Corp. President Chris Stager told the County Council on September 11 that the agency has a non-disclosure contract in place with the business.

Other projects for development that commissioners have approved are:

  • Approving a zoning change from Agriculture 1 to Manufacturing 1 on the north side of C.R. 4, east of C.R. 33 in York Township, allows for the expansion of Pinnacle Transport Group’s operations.
  • Approving the rezoning for 100 acres of land at 13369 C.R. 46 in Middlebury Township to construct five new buildings for Jayco RV. Twenty acres of land at the site was also rezoned to Agriculture-1.
