Site first to get certification

VentureCrossings in Bay County, Fla., is the first industrial site to complete Gulf Power's "Florida First Sites" program. Fourteen sites were initially submitted, and nine are still working towards certification. Most expect to be certified by the end of February. St. Joe Co. owns VentureCrossings Enterprise Centre, adjacent to Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport. The site has proper zoning, service to utilities and met numerous other qualifications that make it ready for development. St. Joe, Gulf Power and local, regional and state economic development agencies will now work to market the site to prospective companies.
