HURON — The Huron West Industrial Park has been approved as a South Dakota Certified Ready Site, according to Pat Costello, commissioner of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.

“The presence of a Certified Ready Site in Huron will allow prospective buyers to have well-packaged information that will make it easier to select and develop a site in the West Industrial Park,” Costello said.

“I would like to congratulate the Greater Huron Development Corporation on applying for and successfully procuring a South Dakota Certified Ready Site,” he said.

The program is an economic development tool available to all counties, cities, townships, planning districts, business improvement districts and economic development groups.

It launched in 2012 and has semi-annual application deadlines for May 1 and Nov. 1. The November deadline was the first time that economic development groups were eligible to apply.

“We are always working to spur economic development in the Huron area and were excited to apply when economic development groups became eligible applicants,” said Jim Borszich, executive director of Greater Huron Development Corporation.

“The presence of a Certified Ready Site will make it easier for us to encourage companies to choose Huron,” he said.

Located at the intersection of West Park Avenue and Center Street, the West Industrial Park covers 61 acres and is certified and zoned for heavy industry.

The South Dakota Certified Ready Sites program is operated under the supervision of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development for the purpose of providing consistent information on sites available throughout the state.
