About Us

Bartholomew County established the Bartholomew County Redevelopment Commission (BCRC) to ensure redevelopment in underutilized/blighted areas and/or areas with barriers to development for a use that is in the best social and economic interest of the County and its residents. This is done through techniques which can include real estate acquisition, site preparation and/or providing public infrastructure to the site. These techniques can be funded using Tax-Increment Financing and Redevelopment General Obligation Bonds that will benefit all taxable property within the boundaries of the Economic Development Area. A primary focus is the enhancement of the economic vitality of the county, the expansion of the tax base and the creation of new jobs within the county.

• Enhance the economic health and vitality of Bartholomew County

• Establish, maintain and enhance community assets that attract business, industry, residents, workforce, and visitors.
• Provide the full range of high-quality infrastructure elements necessary to support business and industry growth, retention and attraction.
