Certified Site Ready

Established in northeast Indiana, the Certified Site Ready program was created to increase the region’s inventory of development ready sites to best meet the needs of site selectors and prospect companies in the highly competitive site selection market of today.

A site earns Certified Site Ready status after completing a third party assessment process by Mark Williams, President and founder or Strategic Development Group. Every certified site must meet benchmarked standards in 15 categories, ensuring that the site is prepared for an expedited development process, anticipating the stringent timelines of prospect companies and considerably minimizing risk.

“Site certification provides a distinct competitive advantage in the site selection process for sites that are successful in achieving this designation,” said Mark Williams. “The local economic development organizations that have completed the rigorous certification process should be congratulated for their success in significantly enhancing the region’s readiness to attract jobs and capital investment.”

“In Adams County, we understand the need to be fully prepared to be competitive; and in business today, time is money,” states Larry Macklin, Executive Director for Adams County Economic Development Corporation. “We are already recognized for our quality workforce. Now because of the certification of these two community-owned sites, the Decatur Industrial Park and the Monroe Business Park are now here to fit incoming business needs- immediately.“
