4. Cass/Logansport Industrial Park. It took state law to allow annexation of it back in the 1990s, but there is area around it and the Logansport-Cass County Airport that warrants review. With a new four-lane highway between the industrial park and the traditional city limits one mile north and utility lines already running along Ind. 329, it stands to reason that the time to annex much of that area is probably now.
5. The west side. It’s a patchwork quilt of annexed areas west of Logansport, and limestone may create a problem for some areas such as The Boulders housing development west of the U.S. 35 Bypass. One added bonus of this annexation could potentially come in the form of utility easements. This area is the missing link in a trail system that runs from Winamac to France Park along a 29-mile section of old railroad right-of-way and the Little Turtle Waterway and River Bluff Trails in downtown Logansport. The trail and annexation could spur development west of the city north of the Wabash River.
6. Northern Heights. This area has benefited from water and sewer lines extended in the 1990s. Water and sewer lines were extended at the time because of septic system problems along the northern edge of the city. Adding areas such as the former Myers Lanes and other areas north of the city as far as 200 North might make sense. The land is relatively flat and developed, and annexation could include the Terpstra Drive area.
7. Chase Road. In a roundabout way, pun intended, development continues along this road that includes both the city and the county.
8. Potawatomi Road, Capitol Street and the Unger Addition. One of the community’s drawbacks in these areas is the number of homes that have previously had water and septic system problems. As mentioned previously, limestone can be a problem and is in these areas, particularly the Unger Addition.
