Overview

In 2017 the Village of Mount Pleasant in Racine County was selected as the site for Foxconn Technology Group’s new liquid crystal display panel glass fabrication facility. The facility is projected to be approximately 20 million sq. ft. (large enough to hold 11 Lambeau Fields) located on approximately 1200 acres (larger than a number of cities and villages in Wisconsin) and will be the largest such facility in the state and one of the largest manufacturing campuses in the world. The facility is expected to create 10,000 construction and related jobs. This program will explore the regional impacts of the development on land use, stormwater runoff, transportation, and housing and the planning necessary to address those impacts by the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission.
