Muskegon hopes to land ‘significant’ manufacturing plant with industrial park expansion
MUSKEGON — By adding 22.7 acres of land to the Port City Industrial Park, the city of Muskegon hopes to lure an expanding light-industrial manufacturer to the site.
Citing a need for large developable sites larger than two to three acres, the city purchased the property at 2420 Remembrance Drive for $340,500. According to City Manager Frank Peterson, the addition is aimed at meeting the needs of “today’s manufacturers,” while also spurring the creation of 150 to 250 full-time jobs.
“We are targeting one particular company,” Peterson wrote in an email to MiBiz. “While we are not in a position to announce which company that is at this time, we do expect that their investment in the property will be significant. The industry-type that we are seeking for the site would likely be classified as light-industrial — including some processing, assembly, and distribution.”
