Prairie Hills Motorsports Club Announces Newton County Approval for Economic Improvement District

On April 9, 2010, the Newton County Board of Commissioners voted to adopt an ordinance establishing the Prairie Hills Economic Improvement District (EID) which will provide support for The Prairie Hills Motorsport Club, an economic improvement project to be developed in Newton County. The formation of the Prairie Hills EID Board, as required by law, will commence shortly. The District Board will consist of representatives from the Newton County government, the landowner, and the Prairie Hills Motorsport Club. The establishment of the Prairie Hills EID allows for a per-use assessment on all attendees or users of Prairie Hills products or services, which ultimately strengthens the financial viability of the development. Roxanna Hanford, President of the Newton County Economic Development Board and Board of Commissioners said "This is the first EID formed in Newton County and I hope it is not the last. I think it is great when a developer and the people affected take a proactive measure to their success and future. Couple that with the fact that this takes nothing away from the schools, libraries or other county agencies receiving their tax share, I feel this will be a great economic win for Newton County."

Prairie Hills CEO, Michael Krupka said "I would like to thank the Commissioners for their continuing support of our efforts to create the premier resort destination for the motorsport enthusiast. We look forward to creating several hundred full time employment opportunities for the people of Northwest Indiana. The Board of Commissioner's foresight in allowing us this opportunity shows their commitment to the people of Newton County. The establishment of the Prairie Hills EID is the lynch-pin of our funding process and we look forward to the construction and future development phases of the Prairie Hills Motorsport Club."

Prairie Hills will be built near Lake Village in Newton County, Indiana approximately 90 minutes South of Chicago and 110 minutes Northwest of Indianapolis, and will provide the ultimate in driving pleasure for discerning motorsports enthusiasts. Prairie Hills is designed as an all-season destination resort and expects to include motorsports activities, an amphitheatre, a water sports park, and snow making equipment for winter sports activities - which will be built in stages.

Prairie Hills expects to be the site for filming a new full length feature movie titled "Indianapolis 500: The Story Begins" in 2010. Justin Escue (Director), Angelo Pizzo (Screenwriter) and Roger Brummett (Associate Producer) of My First Bike Productions have selected the Prairie Hills Motorsports Club facility as the location for the filming of outdoor sets focused on the first running of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in 1911.
