Aug. 26--Officials Tuesday officially opened Allen County government's Stronebridge Business Park on Lafayette Center Road across from the General Motors truck plant. The ribbon-cutting culminated a process that began in 2010, when Allen County officials set aside funds for land banking after recognizing that the community lacked large tracts of development-ready land.
Later that year, the county Redevelopment Commission purchased land that was formerly called Silverado Industrial Park. The Commission invested more than $6 million after the purchase of the land on streets, water and sewer lines and a regional storm water system.
The park contains 12 shovel- ready lots, allowing for up to 124 contiguous acres.
