LAND HO! Iowa launches a certified sites program that’s landing big projects
1 Aug 2018
Every project must begin somewhere, and for most site selectors, that somewhere is a development-ready site.
Recognizing a void in the state’s offerings, the Iowa Economic Development Authority set out six years ago to certify sites that would meet this need.
“We began working with McCallum Sweeney Consulting to design a site certification program,” says Debi Durham, director of the Iowa Economic Development Authority. “We started putting the program together and in January 2012 kicked it off.”
