The Elkhart County Council approved a confirmatory resolution for an economic revitalization area and tax phase-in for Winnebago Industries Inc. in Middlebury, Ind., on Saturday (April 14).

As reported by the Goshen News, the Winnebago project is a go after a month of face-to-face discussions with officials from Elkhart County, Middlebury, the Economic Development Corp. and Winnebago.

Council members voted unanimously for both the commitment agreement and for the confirmatory resolution.

Winnebago plans to invest about $12.3 million to develop a high-tech manufacturing campus around its location on 14th Street on Middlebury’s outskirts, Craig Buche, county attorney, said in the council’s March meeting. The first stage calls for building two facilities, totaling 180,000 square feet, that would become operational by October or November, followed potentially by another two buildings in the next 18 to 24 months.
