Enterprise Park selected for Duke Energy’s Site Readiness Program

The Sanford Area Growth Alliance (SAGA) announced today that Enterprise Park has been selected for Duke Energy’s nationally-recognized Site Readiness Program.

The Duke Energy North Carolina Site Readiness Program provides funding and expertise to help communities identify, assess, improve, and increase awareness of industrial sites and buildings in the Carolinas.

Enterprise Park is a potential 356+ acre property, with approximately 276 developable acres, located off of US-1 Expressway and Colon Road, directly off of Clyde-Rhyne Drive, and is in close proximity to the Lee County Industrial Park. Its easy access to utilities and availability of infrastructure, such as high fiber optic broadband, electric, water, natural gas and sewer make it a prime location for industrial growth.

“We’re honored to be selected for Duke Energy’s Site Readiness Program,” said Joy Thrash, interim CEO for the Sanford Area Growth Alliance. “The staff has worked hard on this project and we’re finally ready to move forward with the property. This is a big win for Lee County.”

After the careful analysis of the site by national consulting firm, McCallum Sweeney Consulting, hired by Duke Energy, SAGA is ready to move forward with Enterprise Park. McCallum Sweeney has assessed the strengths and weaknesses of Enterprise Park, and made recommendations to prepare the site for potential clients.

Enterprise Park will qualify for the Duke Matching Grant and will be awarded a grant to help the community implement the recommendations that have been suggested. Additionally, the Duke Energy Business Recruitment Team will assist in marketing the property to potential companies looking to expand or relocate their current operations.
