Garner made more progress on the economic development front recently when the Garner Industrial Site in Greenfield Park South was adopted into the North Carolina Certified Site Program. The site consists of approximately 151 acres located along U.S. 70 and Raynor Road.
Since 2001, the certified site program has provided a statewide inventory of industrial sites that have undergone a rigorous prequalification process to ensure they are “shovel ready” for immediate development.
A certified site reduces the risks associated with development by supplying detailed information about the site including price and availability, utilities, access, environmental concerns and potential development costs. Sites are periodically recertified to ensure accurate, reliable data. North Carolina’s Certified Sites are highlighted in the state’s online database of available buildings and sites via AccessNC.
“Having a certified site in our community will help Garner stand out from the competition as we continue to market Garner as a great place to locate a business,” Garner Economic Development Director Joe Stallings said. “We want to thank the property owners and economic development partners who have helped in this process. Without them we could not have made it through the process.”
