The Eastern Iowa Airport has the state’s first—and only—Super Park, which is certified under the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) Iowa Certified Site Program. The IEDA’s program was created to fill the demand for project-ready industrial sites, making the decision to locate in Iowa an easy one.
Iowa’s certified site program, designed and implemented by the nationally recognized site selection firm McCallum Sweeney Consulting (MSC), parallels a typical site location process. Once credentialed, an Iowa Certified Site has relevant site-related data and documentation accumulated and is designated as “development ready.”
In order to be considered a Super Park there are certain key criteria that must be met, including:
- A minimum of 500 contiguous acres (the airport’s Super Park has 582 acres)
- The ability to provide 1 million gallons of water per day
- The ability to provide 32,500 million cubic feet of natural gas per month within nine months
- Immediate access to rail and the park must be within five miles of an interstate highway
