Creating hundreds of new jobs and opportunities in Sullivan County
As land becomes increasingly more important, the ability to identify and prepare suitable sites for development is critical for the development of tax ratables and a spectrum of job opportunities. The Partnership's Shovel Ready task force has prioritized resources to facilitate the development of sites near strategic access points in Sullivan County. The development of these sites will position the County to attract a diverse industry cluster base that will attract investment and jobs in the manufacturing, logistics, metal fabrication, production and light assembly sectors. Combined, these shovel-ready commerce parks will help create hundreds of new jobs and opportunities for the greater business community in Sullivan County.
