Over the next sixty days, construction will begin to extend remaining infrastructure to the new PSS site.
Switzerland County purchased the property for the 100 acre Markland Business Park in 2007. Since that time the project has gone through extensive design and permitting with state and federal agencies. The extension of utilities to the site began in 2008 and has continued through 2009. The site has been certified as Shovel Ready by the State of Indiana.
Switzerland County is currently pursuing a Federal grant to construct the needed infrastructure for the remainder of the property, including a new entrance drive and storm drainage system. Construction of the new drive is anticipated to take place in the spring of 2010.
