Zachary considers tech park development

1 year ago June 16, 2013 Jun 16, 2013 Sunday, June 16 2013 Sunday, June 16, 2013 9:28:10 AM EDT in News

ZACHARY, La. - Local officials say a proposed 70-acre technology park could bring business and jobs to the city.

The Advocate reports the proposal calls for the city to provide a site that companies could build on without having to deal with zoning, environmental studies or pre-construction matters.

Mayor David Amrhein says the city might spend up to $700,000 building roads and extending sewer service to a proposed site, which is on Plank Road near Lower Zachary Road.

The city, he said, would gain revenue through property taxes generated by development at the site.

ITT ProCast, an industrial parts supply company headquartered on Flanacher Road in Zachary, has expressed interest in the site for a planned expansion, the mayor says.
