Marshall County has its first Shovel Ready Site!

January 11, 2013

MCEDC, Plymouth


As chairman of Marshall County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC), I’m pleased to see the announcement that a 57 acre site in the Plymouth Industrial Park has achieved Shovel Ready status.  The property belongs to the Plymouth Industrial Development Corporation (PIDCO).  PIDCO paid the cost of achieving Shovel Ready status with MCEDC completing the necessary legwork and application.  “Shovel Ready” is a term that has been bandied about for years in economic development circles, but Indiana has established a definition and criteria for a site to be considered Shovel Ready.  (You can see powerpoint slides on the requirements here.)  PIDCO’s site is now one of only five in our eight county area with this designation.  That gives us a leg up and gives site selectors another reason to visit us.
