"As the Midwest Regional Partner for Crow Holdings Development, I interact with the full gamut of planning staff, zoning commissions, town and city councils, village boards, interested residents, etc. in many cities/towns across the region and in other states. 
While most have been supportive of our projects, some have not (and that’s okay) so long as the message remains consistent throughout the entitlement process. Wavering (or masked) indications of support lead to a significant waste of time, money, and resources for all involved and can lead to completely avoidable confusion and frustration for residents.
From the time Crow Holdings arrived in Merrillville in the Summer of 2020, the Rick Bella-led Town Council, and Shawn Pettit-led Redevelopment Commission has been straightforward, efficient, supportive, and above all else transparent with its intended actions related to our Class A warehouse development projects in the AmeriPlex at the Crossroads business park and now at our 195-acre Silos at Sanders Farm business park. As our relationship with the Town has grown considerably over the last 3 years, we have been treated with the utmost respect by all members of the Town government and understand clearly that our integrity and reputation for delivering on our promises enables the entire process to run smoothly. I have no doubt that this Town Council will act in the best interests of the Town of Merrillville and its residents should we or anyone else ever go against our word."

- From all of us at Crow Holdings, thank you for all of  your continued support!
