BATTLE GROUND, Ind. (WLFI) — The Town of Battle Ground, in partnership with the Tippecanoe County Commissioners, took a step toward developing the site of the old Days Inn Hotel off I-65.
“To help develop the area they created a TIF,” said Tippecanoe County Commissioner Tom Murtaugh. “They wanted to extend it past the Battle Ground town limits, meaning a portion of it is handled by the county.”
The TIF will collect increment difference on any increase in property taxes. The money from the TIF will be used to update the infrastructure in the area.
Town leaders hope developing the old Days Inn site which is right next to I-65 will help boost the local economy.
