Ottawa Looking To Expand Industrial Park

Posted by wlpo on September 20, 2011

If a new industry wants to move to Ottawa, the city will have land for them.

The Ottawa City Council approved an option to purchase 78 acres of land from Standard Bank & Trust Company.  The land is on the east end of the city’s industrial park.

The city has just exercised the option for the land, not actually purchased it yet.  They’re waiting to see if they get a two million dollar grant to develop the land and put in a new road, rail spur and water and sewer.

If Ottawa goes ahead with buying the land, it’ll be for 18 thousand dollars an acre.
