Lauth may bring many jobs to community

(Continued)

BROWNSBURG —

Barker said that potential jobs won’t just aid the local community, it would likely have a far-reaching impact as well.

“The distribution facilities we have now along with future ones, they might not be pulling all of their employees straight from town, but from surrounding communities,” he said. “Providing jobs is just as key as diversifying the tax base.”

Barker said Lauth could do whatever they want with the property in terms of who would occupy the facilities, but that they would likely be distribution centers as there are companies interested in that type of space. He said that Lauth had mentioned that there have been requests for larger facilities in the 500,000 square-foot range.

“They could do anything with the property that the industrial zoning permits. I’d still anticipate that if it does go to a distribution center, it’d be similar to a Home Goods or Guitar Center,” Barker said, giving examples of two distribution centers currently in town.

Sawyer is pleased with the motion of potential movements such as this, a hallmark of the council’s goals this past year.

“We’ve had some plans and goals, and I do believe we’ve met those expectations. We got a lot of work done this year, a lot of projects worked on and completed. I’m happy to say from a target perspective and planning perspective, we’ve gotten a lot done this year.”
