LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn, R-Ida; Rep. Bronna Kahle, R-Adrian; and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley on Tuesday toured the former Tecumseh Products site, which is undergoing a $56.6 million redevelopment that is expected to create 350 jobs.
On Aug. 22, the City of Tecumseh Brownfield Redevelopment Authority received approval of $1.4 million in local and school tax captures to support lead, asbestos and mold abatement as well as demolition activities necessary to prepare the site for redevelopment.
The project will rehabilitate a portion of the old Orbitech building into industrial space and renovate another building into offices. The rest of the 55-acre site will be cleared for a new contemporary retail, industrial and business complex with on-site parking and park space.
Joining Zorn, Kahle and Calley on the tour were Lenawee Now Executive Director Jim Van Doren, Tecumseh Mayor Jack Baker and Great Lakes Aerial President Jason Miller.
