    City Council Reviews Plans for New Industrial Project in Carver

    July 17th, 2018

    At their Monday meeting, the City Council set a public hearing for Tuesday, September 4 to consider the establishment of a tax increment financing district and a tax increment financing plan for Lakeview Industries.  The preliminary site plan shows a 143,000 sq. ft. industrial development project for Lakeview Industries to be located just north of Mills Fleet Farm on Levi Griffin Rd.  The proposed project also involves the extension of Dauwalter Road and a request for tax increment financing.  The primary use of tax increment financing would be to serve as a funding source for the development and construction of an extension of Dauwalter Rd.  In addition, the City intends to apply for State grant dollars to partially fund the extension of Dauwalter Rd.

    Lakeview Industries manufactures and fabricates flexible components including gaskets, die cuts, molded rubber parts, extrusions, and weather stripping among many other offerings.  Based on initial estimates, Lakeview Industries is anticipating they will employ eighty-five (85) people in the new Carver facility.  Contingent upon receiving the necessary approvals, the current project schedule indicates a Spring/Summer 2019 facility opening.
