Wilson said the couple sold a house in Edgewood and considered moving to Fishers.
“With the offering of the tax abatement incentive we decided to stay in Anderson,” he said.
The council approved a three-year tax abatement for Bernard Lee Jr. for the construction of a house valued at $170,000 in the 6500 block of Rangeline Road, east of the Apple Downs subdivision.
Lee said he was relocating to Anderson from Fishers.
He said the home will be energy efficient with poured concrete walls that will be 1 foot thick and serve as insulation.
