Pocotaligo Industrial Park Infrastructure

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Pocotaligo Industrial Park remains agricultural land because it is not yet ready for industrial development prospects. While the old economic development model of deal first, infrastructure later used to work, development prospects today demand ready-to-go parks and shovel-ready sites. As is, Pocotaligo Industrial Park stands only a small chance of attracting a significant industrial development tenant, because it lacks to necessary water and sewer infrastructure.
