St. Charles: Ready For Business

Article by Cris Gastner

City and EDA see infrastructure completed in new business park and assist with completion of infrastructure in existing industrial park.

The City of St. Charles has seen the completion of two major infrastructure projects that provides several options for business looking to expand or relocate to the community.  With the completion of the water booster station this spring, the infrastructure in the new Chattanooga Innovation Park is now complete.  The new park encompasses around thirty acres of developable land in the first phase. City and EDA staff has been contacted by several prospective businesses about the park spanning several industries from retail and hospitality to manufacturing and light industry and are “cautiously optimistic” about seeing some construction in the park this summer.

The City and EDA also assisted in an infrastructure project in its existing Whitewater Industrial Park that will allow an existing business in the park explore a major expansion project as well as make available two really attractive industrial lots for future development.  With the entire infrastructure now in place in phase one of the park, these to lots become extremely marketable to prospective new businesses as well as existing businesses looking to expand.

With these two infrastructure projects now complete, the City of St. Charles is most definitely “Ready for Business”.
