The Canton Industrial Park is the first site in South Dakota to earn certification through the South Dakota Certified Ready Sites program.
The program is an economic development tool available to promote development-ready commercial and industrial sites.
?The Certified Ready Sites Program provides prospective buyers with well-packaged information making it easier to select and develop a site,? said Governor Dennis Daugaard. ?I would like to congratulate Canton for taking advantage of this program and commend them for their continued focus on economic development.?
The next deadline for counties, cities, townships, planning districts, business improvement districts and economic development groups to apply for certification is Nov. 1.
