Shenandoah County IDA approves spending to improve properties
Shenandoah County’s Industrial Development Authority could need to spend more than $800,000 to make several properties more attractive to industrial users. The IDA Board of Directors met Wednesday and heard an update on a study on increasing the marketability of the agency’s properties. After previously increasing three properties from tier 2 to tier 3, they hope to bring the sites up to tier 4. The costs would include engineering and design, clearing and permitting, totaling an estimated $837,000. Director of Tourism and Economic Development Jenna French said she included an option in her budget for the IDA and the county to share the cost. Spending money on the sites would ultimately bring in more industry and benefit the county.
