The focus right now is on phase one, where a million-square-foot manufacturing building will be built over the next year along Highway H.
About a month ago, Mount Pleasant upped the ante for property owners inside phase one of the Foxconn project to voluntarily sell by offering 140 percent of the assessed value for homes and $50,000 per acre of vacant land.
"We didn’t want to miss out on what they were giving," Luxner said.
According to the village, those who are holding out are affected by roadway projects and will be acquired as construction expands. The Mahoneys live near Highway H, which is being reconstructed into four lanes right up to the Foxconn site.
"It’s 550 feet from the road," Mahoney said. "We’ve been told repeatedly that we’re not affected by the expansion of Highway H, however they’re still trying to include us in the acquisition of our property due to roadway projects."
Mahoney said the offer they’ve received doesn’t allow them to rebuild in a similar area with all the upgrades they currently have.
