The Mill Seeks Transformational Resolution
Plans for the redevelopment of the Vicksburg mill are moving forward: Representatives of the project have recently appeared before three local governing bodies. In addition, a tour last month of the former mill included U.S. Rep Fred Upton. The Congressman spoke highly of the proposed development and threw his support behind developer Chris Moore.
During the Vicksburg Village Council’s Sept. 11 meeting, project representatives Jackie Koney and Lisa Phillips said they plan to apply to the Michigan Economic Development Corporation to be a transformational brownfield project. This designation allows for sales tax and other personal-property tax capture under a bill signed by the governor in June.
