Prime Position: Wabash Site Certified Prime

Wednesday, December 20, 2017
Wabash Business ParkThe Wabash Business Complex business park is now Indiana Site Certified Prime by the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA).

Officials from both the City of Wabash and from Grow Wabash County celebrated the new designation along with Indiana Lt. Governor Crouch at the dedication ceremony on Dec. 12.

The Wabash Business Center features state-of-the-art fiber optics connection, access to utilities, a new 750,000 gallon water tower and shovel-ready lots.

The Indiana Site Certified designation indicates the area is ready for economic development, and the “Prime” means the site has met the highest set of criteria in the program, ensuring businesses interested in locating there have much of the work done for them so setting up or relocating is as easy as possible.

Some of the criteria include:

  • Must have 30 contiguous acres
  • Must be no more than 2.5 miles from a state highway
  • Must have a completed archaeological investigation
  • Must be owned by the LUG, LEDO or REDO (or hold an option with the owner)
