Here's a minor update on reports that CNH is looking to build a 300,000-square-foot office building:
Caledonia Village President Ron Coutts said this week that the village wouldn't take any financial risks to lure CNH out of the City of Racine.
Coutts acknowledged reports that CNH was considering a move to the village, but said the interest appears to have cooled off. He added that the village wasn't going to implement a TIF district in hopes of attracting development, only to have it go belly up in the current economy.
CNH is reportedly considering building a major new office building, but has yet to pick a location. The company was close to move out to Highway K, but those talks fell through, according to the the Milwaukee Business Journal.
Coutts added that he expects Racine to fight to keep CNH in the city. "The mayor will do everything he can to keep CNH," he said.
