The City of Michigan City and its economic development commission (EDCMC) have annexed 426 acres of land for commercial and industrial development. Among owners of the parcels of property, located between Menke Road, I-94 and U.S. 20, are Oehmstead Co., Green Acres, Pioneer Lumber, MHP 1 LLC, Illinois Indiana Development Co., and Cemetery Regents of Michigan City. All 6 entities voluntarily petitioned the city for annexation to gain access to city services, including sewer and water.

Oehmstead is a landowner. Green Acres is a manufactured home community. MHP 1 LLC is connected with the mobile home business. Illinois Indiana Development Co. is connected to the railroad industry, particularly the South Shore.  

The annexation is considered especially attractive to business and industry because of its proximity to major highways and the South Shore.

“I believe it is paramount that our goal is to make Michigan City, and in this particular case, this property, attractive and ‘shovel ready’ for potential investors and developers,” Michigan City Mayor Ron Meer said in a press release. “The city engaged in a friendly annexation of this property and plans to invest in the area with water and sewer infrastructure. … Ultimately, everything we have done here is the foundation on which economic and job growth can be built to benefit our community.”

Additional sites are available for retail, commercial, hotel and office space. Potential uses also include residential development, such as a home subdivision and multi-family development. All ideas are currently in the concept phase with potential developers and the EDCMC working together.
