TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Vigo County Commissioners discussed potential plans for the former International Paper property on Tuesday morning.

During the meeting, they approved a resolution that would allow the property to be leased.

They will allow people or businesses to lease the land, as opposed to buying it.

Commissioners say leasing the property keeps it in the county's control.

They say several people have brought ideas to them that would be good for the community.

In another move, the City of Terre Haute will be allowed to buy three acres.

Crews will use the property while building a new lift station for the city.
