Two locations within the Cass County Agribusiness Park have received Indiana Site Certifications. The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs says the prime and gold certifications show the sites’ readiness for economic development opportunities.
The Cass County Agribusiness Park Site 1 has been designated Indiana Site Certified Prime and Cass County Agribusiness Park Site 2 has been designated Indiana Site Certified Gold. To receive the designations, sites must meet certain criteria, including size, distance to a state highway and required zoning, among others.
OCRA says the sites can support advanced manufacturing, agriculture, logistics, aerospace and renewable energy opportunities.
"Cass County’s Indiana Site Certified Prime and Gold designations illustrate their commitment to attracting businesses and jobs to the area, resulting in population growth, an indicator of economic success," said OCRA Executive Director Bill Konyha. "We are pleased to partner with the community as they continue to explore ways to create and sustain a thriving hometown."
OCRA says the Indiana Site Certified designation illustrates the community’s commitment to economic growth, mitigates risks for businesses and serves as a marketing tool to promote the sites.
