LIGONIER, Ind. (Inside Indiana Business): Officials in Ligonier are looking to a new development on the city’s south side to help drive business growth.
A mixed-use development is planned for a nearly 120-acre property that would include industrial, residential and commercial space. Mayor Patty Fisel says the city is also hoping to attract a new hotel so visitors don’t have to seek overnight accommodations elsewhere in Noble County or a neighboring county.
The mayor says marketing the property will be key to getting development underway.
“I’m committed to this project,” the mayor said. “We’ve been working on it for long enough that I’m convinced that if we can get someone in there just to move dirt and to do something, I think from there, it’ll just go. A lot of people don’t know it’s there. They don’t know its annexed. The main thing is that we get the word out that the property is available.”
