The city council voted 6-0 to approve a memorandum of understanding between Lebanon Utilities and the Indiana Economic Development Corp. to pre-allocate 864,000 gallons per day of water and 864,000 gallons per day of wastewater for Lilly once construction is complete.

The project to construct two new manufacturing sites is expected to take up about 600 acres of a 980-acre assemblage of land east of Interstate 65 and north of Lebanon.

Jeff Jacob, an attorney representing Lebanon Utilities, said Lilly hopes to break ground in December 2023. The IEDC will look to receive zoning approval by June.

“Suffice to say, given the size and scope of the proposed [Lilly] project, the request has been to allocate that capacity in advance of the planning process,” Jacob said.
