(LaPorte, IN) - Big news appears to be on the horizon for the Maple Lane Mall in La Porte.
This week, the city council voted to provide financial incentives from the
city’s Urban Enterprise Association to Rural King, the owner of the mall.
Rural King bought the mall in 2017 but there’s been no activity since.
Bert Cook is executive director of the LaPorte Economic Advancement Partnership.
He says the incentives will mean new life to the mall with details on what’s going
to happen there coming soon.
Two other properties were extended financial incentives.
They are the houses being torn down on Pine Lake Ave. to make way for
a possible strip mall and the fire station at E. Lincolnway and Boyd Boulevard.
Commercial development is planned for that property once the fire station moves
to a new facility going up right now on Daytona St.
