PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Gulf Power has launched an interactive website to market 13 industrial sites in a bid to attract new businesses to Northwest Florida. FloridaFirstSites.com highlights sites going through the company's site certification program, designed to create an inventory of shovel-ready parcels that a business prospect can occupy quickly. "Having great sites is key to being competitive for new jobs," said John Hutchinson, Gulf Power's director of Community and Economic Development. "Our site certification program is designed to help communities get in the game when it comes to economic development." (Source: Gulf Power, 06/24/14.
