Goshen City Council members Tuesday (March 6) gave their final nod of approval to a request by Lippert Components Inc. (LCI) for the annexation of approximately 153 acres of land on the city’s southeast side.
The Goshen News reported that during the meeting, council members voted on second reading to approve a request by Lippert for the annexation of three parcels of land located east of and adjacent to the existing Goshen corporate boundary on the north and south sides of C.R. 36, just southeast of the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds.
Central to the request is a plan by Lippert to use the annexed property as the location of a new $20 million facility focused on light manufacturing, research and development with the potential for multiple facilities at the site. The company builds components for the recreational vehicle industry.
As originally proposed, the annexation agreement included requests by both Lippert and a second company, D-ACT-Z, involving six parcels totaling more than 330 acres.
