Today the Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) announced that the Rolla Airport Industrial and Technology Park, located in Vichy, is now a Missouri Certified Site (MCS), meaning it is shovel-ready for companies looking to establish business.
“Certified sites show companies that communities are serious about job creation and business expansion,” Director of the Missouri Department of Economic Development Rob Dixon said. “Preparation is important to win projects, and this is a great way to demonstrate the Rolla area is ready for growth.”
Through the Rolla Airport Industrial and Technology Park’s certification in the MCS program, the site joins more than 30 recognized development-ready land sites. Certified sites meet a set of standards designed to eliminate risk and expedite a company’s move to a new location. Items reviewed include the availability of utilities, site access, environmental concerns, land use conformance, and potential site development costs.
“Rolla is proud to have a second designated Certified Site, which is now our airport industrial park location,” said Cyndra Lorey, Executive Director of Rolla Regional Economic Commission. “We truly believe in the importance of making our properties as marketable as possible and the Certified Site program provides a level of insurance for prospective companies that the site will not have any impediments to development that could cost time and money. Our organization is honored to have worked with the city to gain this designation.”
