In the Greater Fargo-Moorhead region, we understand the importance of speed to market. With several document-ready sites (also referred to as shovel-ready or certified-ready) in our region, you can get to work faster.
The GFMEDC has worked with multiple partners to build the program and qualify sites across the region as document ready, which means that a significant amount of pre-work, identification and location of utilities, and technical reporting on the properties is complete.
For example, to be deemed document ready, a site has completed a litany of technical work such as soil surveys, environmental assessments, wetlands mapping or endangered species assessment. The more technical reports completed, the higher the document ready certification – bronze, silver, gold or the highest, platinum.
The GFMEDC worked with global site location consultant, Phil Schneider, Schneider Consulting, to develop this program. Schneider has reviewed and certified each site based on the appropriate level of data provided.
Please see our current listing of document ready sites and know that we are constantly working with property owners to provide a range of sites in our region to serve a variety of industry needs.
