HOWARD, WI (WTAQ) - Special recognition was handed out Monday to the Village of Howard for being a good place to do business.
A 77-acre property on Marley Street has been selected as a Wisconsin Certified Site. That means it's pre-approved for large industrial development.
Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation officials were on hand at Mills Center, which was one of nine recognized certified sites in the state.
"This is a place where individuals that want to site businesses, coming into Wisconsin or relocating in Wisconsin or expanding in Wisconsin can look and say this is a good site, so I think the Village of Howard has an advantage over other communities,” Reed Hall, interim CEO of WEDC, told FOX 11.
The selection program was announced back in February, as part of Governor Scott Walker's "Ready, Set, Build" initiative.
