The Tonkawa Business Park earned Oklahoma Site Ready status from the Oklahoma Department Commerce.
The Site Ready certification program helps make business relocation, expansion, and development in Oklahoma as inviting as possible. Receiving certified status guarantees that the site is ready for construction. As businesses attempt to minimize risk, locations with shovel-ready sites emerge as top choices. "The Site Ready Program is one of the state's greatest tools for businesses looking to relocate or expand in Oklahoma," says Natalie Shirley, Oklahoma Secretary of Commerce and Tourism. "When a community like Tonkawa has a certified site, it lets business locators and site consultants know that they are ready for growth."
By putting commercial and industrial properties through a rigorous qualification, inspection, and third-party verification process, the Oklahoma Site Ready Certification Program ensures that properties stamped Site Ready are: available for sale or lease immediately; ready to build, with all utilities and other infrastructure in place, pre-permitted, or planned; and clear of regulatory landmines.
The Oklahoma Site Ready Program targets industries such as aerospace, research, industrial and rural business.
