Some Land, Property Owners Collectively Hire LawyerThe location of the manufacturing facility has not officially been named. However, the Village of Mount Pleasant hired a project coordinator for the Foxconn project earlier this month. The village also requested that the Racine Water and Wastewater Utility expand and extend water and sewer capacity for an anticipated development. Racine County Eye spoke with Thomas Devine, the attorney representing about 25 to 30 home and landowners that live south of Highway 11, west of Airline Road, north of Braun Road and east of Interstate 94. They have all received letters from an interested party indicating that they would like the option to buy their property. But all of Devine’s clients have decided not to take the option. Some of the families have lived on their land for generations. They would rather remain on their familial land if possible, he said. Still, the sales process has not been defined. “We’re waiting for the decision to move forward with the purchase of the land,” Devine said. “We’re waiting to understand what the purchase process is going to be.”
