MOUNT PLEASANT – With site work underway on the Foxconn project site in Racine County, the Village of Mount Pleasant will convene regular monthly Foxconn project briefings designed to offer interested community members the opportunity hear directly from Village officials and project partners about the latest Foxconn-related updates and activities and ask questions.
“We value open dialogue and transparency,” said Claude Lois, Project Director for the Village of Mount Pleasant. “It has always been our intention to host regular public briefing meetings, now that work is underway, it is the right time.”
Briefings will be held the third Monday of every month from 6:00 – 7:30 PM in Ebe Auditorium at Village Hall, located at 8811 Campus Drive in Mount Pleasant. The first briefing will be on Monday, May 21.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
Foxconn is investing an estimated $10 billion in Mount Pleasant, in the heart of Racine County, Wisconsin to create North America’s first liquid crystal display (LCD) manufacturing facility.
