The construction of the Cottage Grove Interstate Commerce Park is nearing completion, including utilities and streets.
Two marketing firms has been hired to promote the Business Park and are working to bring businesses into our community. The first firm is Polacheck who are marketing about 18 acres for Landmark (The new name for Cenex Coop). These lots will be for businesses which would provide services for the balance of the Business Park and some interstate services like a hotel or restaurant. The other firm is Blettner Group who are marketing about 100 acres for the Village. These lots will be for offices, light manufacturing, research and similar
types of businesses.
Decorative street lights will be installed in the next few weeks along the streets in the first and second phase of the Business Park. Landscape work along the entry and screening neighboring residences will be completed next spring.
Highway N was improved with dedicated left turn lanes at the intersection to the main entrance into the Business Park. Plans are in the works with the county, state and federal DOT to expand N along the length of the business park to a divided four-lane roadway with stop and go lights during 2008.
