Home : Economic Development > Wittenberg Business Park

The Wittenberg Business Park is ready for occupancy.  The Business Park consists of 72 acres with the front part of the Business Park, approximately 18 acres, ready for immediate development.  All utilities are in place such as: fiber optics, cable, water, sewer, gas and electric.  Curb and gutter has been installed; some roads have been paved.

Land prices are very reasonable with credits available to offset the price!  We have favorable tax rates.  This means more money in your pocket and/or more funds available for your building project.  Although lots are plotted on the business park map, they are just ideas that could be used.  None of the lots have been surveyed; therefore you can determine what will work best for your proposed development.
