Certified Sites

To make the search for industrial real estate easier, we’ve already done some work for you. The Charlotte County Certified Sites Program contains an inventory of industrial sites that have undergone a rigorous qualification process to ensure they meet a consistent set of standards. A Certified Site reduces the risks associated with development by providing detailed information about a site, including price and availability, utilities, access, environmental concerns and potential development costs. Sites are periodically recertified in order to ensure accurate, reliable data.

Our Site Certification Program puts your site in the best possible position to attract new business and industry. Certified sites ensure that the most time-consuming technical and regulatory aspects of development are already complete.

The certification gives your site a competitive edge by making it more attractive to companies and site-selection consultants looking for locations for business startups, expansions or relocations.


Required criteria include:

  • Price
  • Deed or Proof of Ownership
  • Survey
  • Location Map
  • Title Search
  • Phase 1 Environmental Assessment
  • Preliminary Wetlands identification
  • Listed/Endangered Species report
  • Geotechnical data
  • Flood Zone information
  • Road access
  • Certification of Zoning
  • Water and Sewer service availability

Please contact our office for additional information about our Certified Sites and how to join the program.
