A 270-acre area of land immediately northeast of the town of Milford has made another cut in the process of deciding where a $70 million to $80 million grain processing facility will locate.
George Robertson of the Kosciusko Economic Development Corporation confirmed Wednesday that the number of sites under consideration by the company has been narrowed from three to two and that Milford is still in the running. A final decision is expected within a month.
The property is north of the east-west railroad tracks, northeast of Milford Junction. It is not adjacent to CR 1300 North, although that is the road KEDCo would like to see improved to provide a southern access route for the company. If the agricultural company selects the site for a new processing facility, the county will move to establish a tax increment financing district on the parcels and to significantly improve and extend CR 1300 North.
