MERRILLVILLE — The estimated cost to construct a new community center hasn’t been determined, but town officials have been discussing a potential bond issue to help fund the development.
Recent discussions have involved pursuing a tax increment financing district bond of $14.9 million.
Town Council President Richard Hardaway said Merrillville hasn’t finalized the amount of the potential bond because town leaders are waiting for a final cost estimate for the construction of the center that will be located on land Merrillville has acquired in the 6600 block of Broadway.
