EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) – Evansville’s mayor says the city has secured land options for its preferred downtown site for an Indiana University Medical School branch campus.
Mayor Lloyd Winnecke isn’t identifying the site but has made it clear he prefers that IU locate the campus in Evansville’s downtown. Other proposed sites are on the city’s east side, in adjacent Warrick County, and at the University of Southern Indiana, where the medical school currently is housed.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports (http://bit.ly/1bcLXcD ) the city’s Redevelopment Commission on Tuesday voted to request qualifications from entrepreneurs interested in developing the downtown site.
IU has set a Jan. 31 deadline to receive site proposals. The University of Southern Indiana, the University of Evansville and Ivy Tech Community College also will offer programs at the new site.
