Golden LEAF will provide support to identify potential industrial sites in communities that do not currently have quality industrial sites to market. The process will involve communication between site development consultants and the applicant to gather information to guide identification of potential sites and to help narrow those sites for further consideration by the community.
Use of Funds
If selected for funding in this phase, a team of site development consultants engaged directly by Golden LEAF will work with the applicant to learn more about the community’s economic development opportunities and strategies and gather information about the community’s infrastructure and assets. Using that information, the consultants will conduct a GIS review of the community to identify exploration zones to consider. The team will conduct site visits with the applicant to review those exploration zones for potential industrial sites.
At the conclusion of the process, the consultants will provide recommendations regarding targeted development opportunities, sites that merit further evaluation, the development potential of those sites, strengths and weaknesses of each site, and the timeframe for potential development.
A projected timeline is included in the application guidelines.
