A project to develop the Shelburne Industrial Park to make it ready for potential businesses is underway.
The Municipality of Shelburne has injected $1.2-million into the project where they will pave a road, subdivide 24 lots as well as provide water and sewer.
Construction crews were on the scene carving out what will be a road to access the 1.5-acre lots.
“We aren’t doing anything fancy,” said CAO for the Municipality of Shelburne, Kirk Cox.
“This is all a part of our services plan.”
He said the municipality has not set on a price yet for what they will charge for each serviced lot but said they would get a better idea once the properties are assessed.
“People want land,” he said. “We hope to develop a marketing plan that will attract aquaculture, fishing and oil and gas exploration.”
He said there has been no discussion with Cooke Aquaculture on whether the location would be considered for their planned processing plant.
Work is expected to be completed by spring.
