[ARCHIVED] Yorkville Site Named BNSF Certified Site!
- In order to be considered for the designation, sites must undergo a thorough analysis, which includes an evaluation of environmental and geotechnical standards, available utilities, site availability and existing and projected infrastructure. The newly-designated Certified Sites feature hundreds of acres ready for industrial development. Certified Sites are a part of BNSF’s Premier Parks, Sites and Transload program. The program is a strategic approach that addresses the increasing demand for customer site locations by developing various types of facilities across BNSF’s network. Businesses looking to locate at any of these properties could save six to nine months of construction time as a result of this analysis. BNSF Certified Sites are reviewed by an industry expert in order to ensure accurate, reliable data. The goal of the program is to provide an inventory of rail-served sites that are available for immediate development. “Since the program’s inception in March 2016, BNSF’s Certified Sites have attracted more than $140 million of customer investments,” said Colby Tanner, assistant vice president, economic development, BNSF.
