Please join us at our latest Planners Brown Bag Lunch meeting to discuss a new program called RI Ready, administered by the Quonset Development Corporation.
The RI Ready program will create an inventory of pre-permitted properties ready for industrial development throughout Rhode Island by providing “wrap around” services for each, as needed.
The goal of the program is to create jobs, attract private investment from companies, generate tax revenue and provide economic benefits for the people of Rhode Island. RI Ready is based on Quonset's successful Site Readiness program, which has allowed the Business Park to grow to over 200 companies with more than 12,200 workers.
At this meeting, you will hear from Chelsea Siefert, Director of Planning & Development at the Quonset Development Corporation and Program Manager of the RI Ready program. Chelsea will be able to answer questions about how your municipality can receive funding under this program and how your municipality can support the creation of pad-ready industrial sites that can generate jobs and tax revenue.
