HAMMOND, Ind. — The city of Hammond seeks to redevelop a former industrial site that juts into Lake Michigan at Indiana’s northwestern border with Illinois.

The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports officials are crafting a proposal to boost economic development on the land that once held the State Line Generating Plant. The Hammond Redevelopment Commission this past week approved a resolution that eventually could allow the city to provide incentives to those who develop it.

The privately owned 78-acre site has generated some interest but officials haven’t shared details. The property also has been pitched as a potential site for Amazon’s planned second headquarters.
