The northern Regional Cities region has three more projects funded from the $42 million pie.

A science center for teachers and students in Elkhart is getting $532,325. The money at the ETHOS Science and Robotics Center will be used for the K-12 Robotics program, according to WSBT.

The Mill at Ironworks Plaza in downtown Mishawaka is getting $5.26 million to help build luxury apartments, retail and restaurant space near Beutter Park. The total project is nearly $42 million, meaning the Regional Cities award makes up about 12% of the costs.

In South Bend, 10% of a $49.33 million mixed-use development at Commerce Center has been approved. $4.9 million is going towards luxury apartments, along with a future Martin’s grocery store and pharmacy.

These are the fourth, fifth, and sixth projects approved for northern Regional Cities funding so far.

These regional projects are not just additional dollars we are ‘getting’. They are money we have already paid in taxes coming back to the region so we can pay more matching taxes to spend it. All for projects approved by an un-elected board, watering down the responsibility and accountability of local governments for making these decisions.

America, sleepwalking away from freedom.
