60 acres of the Old International Paper Plant property are up for lease by the Vigo County Commissioners.
Officials home someone will make use of the land and clean up the area.
Commissioner Kearns says the river front property would be a great opportunity for investors.
“An advantage of leasing it is that the county maintains control of it. You know the county commissioners saw the foresights several years ago on acquiring that property to use it for the public good,” he said. “This is a way that we can ensure that we maintain that mission of using that property for the public’s best interest.”
Commissioners are open to all those interested in leasing the property.
