Syracuse Technology and Industrial Park

Syracuse, Indiana

The site is located outside of the Town’s limits and falls within the jurisdiction of Elkhart County. Our firm facilitated the complex interlocal agreements needed for this multi-jurisdicational project. The firm provided all services needed to accomplish the required two-part zoning process including an update to the Town’s Comprehensive Plan.

JPR facilitated the creation of a Tax Increment Finance district that includes the site as well as the adjacent industrial corridor. The Plan was adopted by the County’s Redevelopment Commision and includes an interlocal agreement between the Town and Elkhart County, that allows reimbursement over the life of the TIF.

The site for this development was complex and contained significant vertical relief, heavy soils, and isolated wetland areas. The detailed design for improvements provided solutions for all of these challenges and was reviewed in detail and approved by many federal, state, and local agencies. The site was also bisected by a petroleum pipeline and a fiber optic trunkline.

The off-site improvements included a water pressure booster station due to the site’s vertical relationship to the Town’s north water tower.

Services provided included planning, surveying, detailed studies for utilities, a traffic impact study, zoning, design engineering and representation at multiple meetings and public hearings. The firm also assisted with funding procurement and provided acquisition services for utility easements and roadway right-of-ways.
