Elkhart City Council approves new medical complex
ELKHART. Ind. -- On Monday night, the Elkhart City Council voted 8 to 0 on a proposed ordinance to convert 1111 W Bristol Street into a medical complex.
The new proposed complex will be built right where an old factory was.
There will be 5 buildings in the complex and the main building will be an outpatient facility.
The city council expressed their support for the new complex, saying that the complex would bring more jobs and more revenue to the area.
'We can't provide any estimates on jobs because I still don't have that information, but we're excited that there'll be multiple, multiple new medical providers in the city. We anticipate that they'll be well paying jobs," said Chris Stager, President of the Economic Development Corporation of Elkhart County
The project is set to start in March of 2023 and is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2024.
