Orland Industrial Park Certified

Monday, August 01, 2016

Steuben County’s Orland Industrial Park has received an important certification from the state, clearing the way for economic development there.

The 23 acre park, intended to support advanced manufacturing, agriculture, logistics and renewable energy operations, also recently completed a $500,000 road project to prepare for traffic there.

The certification comes from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA), which gave Orland Industrial Park their “Silver” level certification.

“The Orland Industrial Park has seen recent growth through new and several expanding businesses,” said Kevin Kellett, president of the Orland Town Council. “The Site Certified designation for the available property within the park will help further growth and employment opportunities for the Town of Orland and the residents of our community.”

OCRA’s Indiana Site Certified program has three tiers to indicate what level of preparedness sites are for economic development: Silver, Gold and Prime. Silver, which is the level that Orland Industrial Park now has, requires:

  • Defined boundaries with a clear title
  • Established price
  • Demonstrated executive-level local government support
  • Defined utility capacity and distance
  • Completed documentation such as Phase 1 environmental assessment, ALTA, topographical and property layout
