The Lees­burg In­dus­trial Prop­erty in Chero­kee County has re­ceived the Alabama Ad­van­tageSite des­ig­na­tion.

The Ad­van­tageSite pro­gram re­quires that com­mu­nity eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment or­ga­ni­za­tions pro­vide doc­u­men­ta­tion spe­cific to a pro­posed in­dus­trial site, in­clud- ing a set of stan­dard data re­lated to own­er­ship/con­trol, en­vi­ron­men­tal and geotech­ni­cal con­di­tions, and in­fra­struc­ture sta­tus. Sites must also meet size, zon­ing and ac­ces­si­bil­ity re­quire­ments.

The 28.6- acre in­dus­trial park is lo­cated within the Town of Lees­burg city lim­its and has di­rect ac­cess to U.S. High­way 411. All util­i­ties are at the site.

The ap­pli­ca­tion process was man­aged lo­cally by the Chero­kee County In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity with a team of lo­cal en­ti­ties sup­port­ing and/or par­tic­i­pat­ing in the ap­pli­ca­tion process.

This is the first time a site in Chero­kee County has re­ceived this des­ig­na­tion.

“The Town of Lees­burg is very ex­cited to re­ceive the Ad­van­tageSite des­ig­na­tion” said Mayor Brandy Pierce.
