The Town is working with the consultants to determine the total cost. There is aging infrastructure in the area which will require attention whether private development happens or not. While the total Town investment potential is not known at this time, we have researched other communities who have gone through the same process. For example, another Indiana community completed their downtown plan and leveraged $36 million in public investments in the first 5 years.
This investment has spurred over $200 million in private investment to date, with more to come soon. We believe a similar ratio of investment could emerge in Plainfield. Once received by the design consultants, preliminary budgets for the various projects will be posted on the website.
