At Monday night’s Glencoe City Council meeting, the plan was unveiled that ties into the recently announced plans of nearby Miller Manufacturing.
Miller Manufacturing has already purchased some of the Creekside property for its upcoming 100,000-square-foot expansion that is expected to get under way this spring.
