Daily Reporter Reports New Palestine Seeks More Time on Justus Company's Abatement Request for Senior Housing

From the Greenfield Daily Reporter:

They didn’t say no, but they didn’t say yes, either.

Town officials say they still need to gather more information about tax abatements before they give an answer to the Justus Companies’ request for what could be as much as $3.7 million in tax breaks on the construction of a proposed $18.6 million housing complex for seniors.

Officials from the Justus Companies, including company owner and President Walter Justus, made a pitch to the New Palestine Town Council Saturday morning seeking tax abatement on the proposed construction.
