EDC APPROVES LAND TRANSFER TO MIDWEST INDUSTRIAL PARK PROSPECT

(Richmond, IN)--Another step was taken Thursday in Wayne County’s effort to land a new pet food manufacturer.  The company would create nearly 150 jobs with its venture in the Midwest Industrial Park.  On Thursday, the EDC Board approved transferring 90 acres of land to the company.  Richmond is believed to be the leading finalist for the project, with only one other location in contention.  Richmond Common Council must still approve the transfer.
