Here is the article: Updated on Sunday, January 14, 2001 12:04:35 AM. Wayne needs more industry sites, EDC told ATLANTIC BEACH -- Wayne County is running out of pr! oducts to sell in the fast-paced, competitive game of industry recruitment, consultants say. And it's time to build up the inventory. The products are industrial sites -- land and vacant buildings the county can use to attract companies. "You need sites in a hurry," said consultant Robin Spinks of Greenfield Associates. "There is very little product in your inventory right now." Ms. Spinks and Mary Lilley of Greenfield Associates in Wrightsville Beach have been taking stock of potential industrial sites in Wayne County under a $10,000 study commissioned by the Economic Development Commission. The consultants, who are often hired by companies to find sites, presented their preliminary findings during an EDC retreat Friday. The weekend retreat was the first one by the EDC in three years. It was held at Atlantic Beach, with 27 government, education and business leaders in Wayne County attending. The consultants recommended that the county! prepare four types of sites to attract companies: one with 500 or more acres, one with 100 to 500 acres, one with 50 to 100 acres and several sites of 5 to 50 acres. The consultants found nine potential sites, all of which are vacant land: Two are in northwestern Wayne, one with about 500 acres and another with about 200 acres. One is south of Pikeville with about 350 acres. Three are west of Goldsboro, ranging in size from 100 to 250 acres. One is at Grantham with about 375 acres. One is between Goldsboro and Mount Olive with about 130 acres. And one is south of Mount Olive with about 100 acres. The exact locations were not revealed to the public, because the study is still under way. No property owners have been contacted, and neither the EDC nor the county commissioners have decided to act on the recommendations. But those attending the retreat seemed receptive to the idea. The sites would serve as alternatives to ParkEast ! Business and Industrial Park off Martin Luther King Expressway. Economic leaders say different types of property are needed to attract companies that are not interested in being in an industrial park or that may want to be in a park that has fewer restrictions than ParkEast. The sites could become industrial parks, or they could stand alone. "Economic development is selling," Ms. Lilley said. "You are selling product, and your product is your site." The message of having industrial sites isn't new to EDC members, who have been told the same thing over and over by state officials and by visiting company representatives. But the problem comes with finding land suitable for industrial development and getting the amount of investment needed to prepare it. Land with all the amenities that companies want, like sewer and water lines, highway access and natural-gas service, is not easily found in rural Wayne, Ms. Spinks said. The land should b! e close to utility lines. And most important of all, it must have fast access -- now, or in the future -- to Interstates 95 or 40. All of the potential areas are close to existing highways or future ones like the future U.S. 117 and the proposed U.S. 70 Bypass. Companies also want to be away from residential areas, to avoid potential conflicts, Ms. Lilley said. Only about one-third of the county has zoning, which means that in most of the county, people can build whatever they want, where ever they want. Many companies are reluctant to build a plant where residential development could grow near them, Ms. Lilley said. They foresee neighbors complaining about noise, traffic or other problems. The consultants said the nine sites are far enough from residential areas to avoid conflicts. Some county leaders have pressed for zoning that would provide orderly growth and preserve potential industrial sites. Without zoning, the other option to ! buy enough land to provide a buffer between the business and surrounding property, Ms. Spinks said. Then comes the problem of how to obtain the land. So far, the county commissioners have been the lead organization in funding industry-recruitment projects. One possibility is for the county to buy the land like it did with the back portion of the ParkEast Business and Industrial Park. Ms. Spinks said another way may be to take out options. This works by the county paying a certain percentage of the price of the land. The property owner gets the rest of the money when the property is sold to a company. The property owner also agrees to let the county market the land to industry. Ms. Spinks recommended that the county take out options for at least five years with automatic renewals. The county could also obtain a letter of intent from the land owner guaranteeing the property's sale. But some companies are uncomfortable with that, she said! . Once the property is available for sale to companies, it must be prepared. Companies want land that is ready to be built upon, Ms Lilley said. That means conducting surveys, preparing maps, soil tests and other preparations. It costs about $50,000 to prepare each site. The county can get state grants to pay for it, she said. But the bottom line, the consultants said, is that companies expect cheap -- or free -- land and buildings. And once they own them, they want to be able to act fast to construct a new building or to move into an existing one. "They're in a hurry," said Ms. Spinks. "And they want to be able to get it as cheap as possible."
