Indiana University President Michael McRobbie has recommended downtown Evansville for the new site of the IU medical school.

According to 14 WFIE, "The project cost of the Evansville location is $69.5 million ($87 million to include area plan/costs). Incentives include TIF District supported incentives of $35 million."

Before the location is finalize, the IU Board of Trustees must vote - the board will meet today at noon to discuss.

The proposed site is Locust St. to Cherry and 4th to 6th St. If the downtown area is approved, several businesses will be relocated including Townsquare Media.
