The U.S. 41 Industrial Park in Knox County has received a key certification. The Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs has designated the 63-acre site in Vincennes as Indiana Site Certified Gold.
The Indiana Site Certified program certifies that sites are ready for economic development, according to OCRA. To receive the Gold designation, a site must have a minimum of 20 contiguous acres, be located no more than five miles from a state highway, and be free from recognized environment concerns, among other requirements.
OCRA says Knox County has invested millions of dollars in recent years to install the necessary infrastructure for the site.
"Knox County has been fortunate to experience a steady growth in our combined industrial parks which make up approximately 9.8 percent of Knox County’s workforce and more than $73 million in annual payroll," said Kent Utt, president of the Knox County Development Corporation. "This additional 63-acres provide us with over 210 acres of shovel ready acreage available for future growth."
