Elkhart Redevelopment Commission holds meeting about Armory


A historic building in Elkhart is one step closer to getting new life.

The Elkhart Redevelopment Commission approved a plan to seek proposals on how to re-use the old Elkhart Armory Tuesday.

We're told developers from Chicago, Indiana and Elkhart have all expressed interest.

Now they need to put that interest in writing by May 14th.

Todd Zeiger of Indiana Landmarks says, "It's great to have dreams and we all have those and we all can see maybe a vision for the re-use. The successful proposal is going to be able to say I have this vision for the property. Here's how we see using it, here's how it fits with downtown and here's how we're going to pay for it."

Preservationists are optimistic a developer will come forward with a viable plan and spare the old building from the wrecking ball.
