Editorial: The Foxconn deal provides plenty of cause to be thankful
"This time of year is all about thankfulness, and this year Racine County has a lot to be thankful for. A lot of that is for Foxconn, which plans to invest billions of dollars to build a massive manufacturing campus in Mount Pleasant that could employ as many as 13,000 workers when fully constructed...

We know that locally, Racine County and Mount Pleasant have an outstanding team in place working on finalizing this deal — the deal of a lifetime.
Just as state board members did, we expect that local officials are asking the tough questions to ensure local taxpayers are protected just as state taxpayers are.

We look forward to having this deal signed, seeing shovels in the ground and officially welcoming Foxconn to Racine County."

Last week, the Mount Pleasant Village Board approved the Project Plan for TID 5, which incorporates the Foxconn project area. Additionally, the Village approved the Relocation Orders for Braun Road, Highway H and International Drive. The orders will be used to acquire land to make public infrastructure improvements, including widening the roadways.

This week, the Village Board and County Board will consider the Developers Agreement between the Village of Mount Pleasant, Racine County and Foxconn. Both boards will also consider approval of an intergovernmental agreement that includes creation of a intergovernmental commission to oversee the Foxconn development. The commission, including representatives from the Village and County, will jointly manage land and investments for the project.
