After months of meetings, debate and community input, Goshen City Council members are set to finalize their decision on whether to approve an annexation agreement with Lippert Components Inc. involving approximately 153 acres of land on the city’s southeast side.
The Goshen News reported that during Tuesday’s (March 6) meeting, council members are scheduled to cast their second and final vote on a request by Lippert for the annexation of three parcels of primarily agriculturally zoned land located east of and adjacent to the existing Goshen corporate boundary on the north and south sides of C.R. 36/College Avenue, just southeast of the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds.
Central to the request is a desire 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.
