Certified Site initiative aims to diversify area’s economy

RCM Realty Group and the Northern Nevada Development Authority announced the approval of the first NNDA Nevada Certified Site, a 46-acre industrial site on Arrowhead Drive, adjacent to the Carson City Airport.

The NNDA Nevada Certified Site designation serves as a pre-qualification for buyers and site selectors, indicating a property’s title is clear, that it possesses sufficient utilities and other infrastructure for commercial use, and that it’s properly zoned and has adequate transportation access for such uses among other criteria. NNDA sponsors the program to enhance the region’s appeal to companies not located in Northern Nevada.

For a site to be Certified, it must be available with a firm price; it must be fully served by utilities and transportation access; and it must be ready for permitted development within a defined and known period of time.
