Property lines are not the only things separating MOR/ryde International and the RV supplier’s new neighbors.
The Elkhart Truth reported that close to 80 people came together Tuesday (March 19) to learn more about MOR/ryde’s plans to rezone a 22-acre property near C.R. 15 between Eastwood Elementary School to the north and a group of subdivisions to the south. The family owned business wants to expand its nearby Cooper Drive plant, one of its three facilities in the county.
After hearing concerns from area residents, school district officials approached MOR/ryde about a property exchange that would allow the company to swap 10 acres of its land along C.R. 15 for 10 acres behind the elementary school. If school officials are able to come to a compromise with MOR/ryde, the company has agreed to invest $75,000 to rebuild the school’s soccer field along C.R. 15 with a nature trail and donate another $5,000 to renovate a horse barn on the property for the school’s use.
