Pro Logis project comes to Lebanon

Lebanon — The Pro Logis and Subaru America project is coming to Lebanon, Planning Director Charlie Campbell announced at Monday’s Lebanon Board of Works meeting.

The project is a go after approval from the Lebanon Plan Commission Board and the Lebanon City Council late last month. The plan commission approved the project unanimously, though it was a tough sell for the city council because Pro Logis was seeking a non-traditional tax abatement.

“After discussing a wide range of issues, we got all those things ironed out,” Campbell told the board of works Monday. “So it looks like we’ll see a nice, big development out there.”

Developer Pro Logis and client Subaru America plan to develop land off Interstate 65 behind Hattie B. Stokes Elementary School. Subaru will move from its current Whitestown facility onto a new 715,000-square-foot facility on the Lebanon site, with an initial capital investment of $18 million and plans to expand to 900,000 square feet within a couple of years. Construction could begin this spring, as Subaru is looking to move into the new facility in March of 2014.

Also at Monday’s board of works meeting:

Lebanon Fire Chief Jason Lee shared that firefighter Michael Haston has been promoted to lieutenant. Additionally, the department’s apparatus committee is working on putting together requirements for a new rescue engine. He will probably come to the board for permission to send the project out for bids in the next couple of months, he said.
