SEEDS Industrial Site Assessment Projects Now Underway

Two SEEDS-supported industrial site assessment projects commenced this week in the Northwest Alabama EDA region.

The two SEEDS projects are for (1) the 210+-acre Hamilton I-22 Industrial Park (property listing) and (2) the new 75+-acre Sulligent Industrial Site on U.S. 278. The State of Alabama’s SEEDS Program (Site Evaluation and Economic Development Strategy Act) provides grants to accelerate the development of industry-ready sites. In March, the State of Alabama announced that our region was awarded $179,000 in total SEEDS funding. The SEEDS funds will accelerate our efforts to complete due diligence, site assessment, and planning tasks for strategically located sites. The projects are also utilizing EPA Brownfields Assessment Grant funds.

  • Hamilton I-22 Industrial Park (SEEDS applicant: the Hamilton Industrial Development Board): this project will deliver a master plan for additional improvements to this park, which is already one of the best-positioned industrial locations on the I-22 corridor.
  • Sulligent Industrial Site (SEEDS applicant: the City of Sulligent): this 75+ acre site on the north side of U.S. 278 is a prime growth location for Lamar County. Adjacent to Sulligent’s two largest existing manufacturing operations, Bolzoni Auramo and Max Homes, respectively. The site provides ample acreage to support new and expanding industry projects.
