Communities want to grow. Growth is jobs, business sales, expanding tax base and opportunities for the next generation. Growth is also change, and change for any reason can be difficult.
For some time the city has signaled and planned on the north side of Seymour as a growth corridor. The location of the Eastside Industrial Park was a signal. The location of Burkart Bloulevard connecting U.S. 50 and State Road 11 was one. Recent single-family housing starts near Trinity Lutheran High School is still another.
It will not be long until there are businesses along Burkart. And, hopefully, that will cause the city to look at a similar route that will come out of Freeman Field and go eastward to Tipton Street over the next 20 years.
