The Tulare Economic Development Corporation contracted with Foote Consulting Group (FCG) to review and certify a number of industrial sites in the county, including this site. Certification is a nationally recognized process that assures companies and site selection consultants that an industrial property is ready for development.
The FCG certification process looks at 39 site variables in a detailed application process. We certify the site at a Gold, Silver or Bronze level depending on how the variables are met. This certification tells the development world that the site is “ready to go”!
Deane Foote visited Dinuba on 9/29/15 and met with several community/regional officials and toured the site. We discussed how to use the certification in promoting and marketing the site and getting this information in the hands of site selection consultants and perspective companies. Deane will be sharing examples of good site brochures.
