County Industrial Park Declared ‘Shovel Ready’
July 16, 2008 - The New Castle/Henry County Industrial Park was one of nine locations designated a "Shovel Ready" site by the state last week, paving the way for businesses to quickly locate new operations on property ready for development.
Shovel Ready sites are, according to a state press release, certified by the state's Fast Access Site Team that consists of representatives from the Indiana Economic Development Corp., the Governor's Office, Indiana Dept. of Natural Resources, Indiana Dept. of Environmental Management, Indiana Dept. of Transportation, Indiana State Dept. of Health, Indiana State Dept. of Agriculture and the Indiana State Dept. of Homeland Security. Certified sites have been eligible for matching grants to assist with eligible costs associated with applying for the Shovel Ready program.
The NCHC Industrial Park is located on County Road 400- South, just off State Road 3. It is approximately two-and-a-half miles from Interstate 70. According to the New Castle/Henry County Economic Development Corp. website, the land is zoned I-1 (industrial) and has 47.2 and 67.5 acres lots available, with pricing starting at $15,000 an acre.
The other eight sites receiving the Shovel Ready designation last week are located in Clark, Crawford, Jennings, Knox, La Porte, Lawrence, Perry and Warrick counties. Thirty other locations have been certified by the state as Shovel Ready since 2006.
