Fifth site to receive designation designed to attract new companies
BEAVER DAM, Ky. (April 28, 2015) — Lt. Gov. Crit Luallen today joined community leaders to announce that a five-county industrial site in Beaver Dam will be officially certified under Kentucky’s new Build-Ready program.
Build-Ready, launched by the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development last year, is a cost-effective way for communities to distinguish their list of available industrial sites to meet the needs of today’s site selectors.
The 30-acre site is located in the Bluegrass Crossings Business Centre, along the Western Kentucky Parkway. Bluegrass Crossings is a partnership between Daviess, Hancock, McLean, Muhlenberg and Ohio counties.
The Build-Ready site is the start of several improvements Bluegrass Crossings plans to make to the park in the coming year, including improved road access to the park.
This is the fifth site in the commonwealth to be certified as Build-Ready. Two sites in Bowling Green and one in Henderson received the certification last year, as well as one in Glasgow last month.
