Study to affect multiple cities


“The purpose would be to come back and figure out at the point where industry begins to develop, what are those thresholds where we need to complete certain activities.”

Officials from Low Moor also are expected to attend.

Vulich said that while traffic is the focus, developing the U.S. 30 corridor is a well-rounded endeavor. Utilities upgrades, such as water supply, will need to take place and there are considerations that more than just industrial enhancements can take place.

He said there are possibilities for residential and commercial developments as well.

“A lot is going to depend upon the economics of the whole region,” Vulich said. “We’ve got to have developers who want to spend money to develop. Our hope is that we’ll start to see more development. That corridor study shows us what type of development is suitable for what areas along Highway 30.”

Speaking for colleagues, Vulich added there is a lot of anticipation for city leaders when details of the study are unveiled. The meeting is open to the public.
