Anderson 400 at Princeton designated green business park
PRINCETON, Iowa (AP) — After a three-year process, a one-time 400 farm in eastern Iowa has become the second site in Iowa certified as a green business park.
The Quad-City Times reports that Gov. Kim Reynolds on Wednesday announced the certification of the Anderson 400 near Princeton. Nearly 150 people gathered to celebrate the long-awaited designation, which was formally presented to the Anderson family by Reynolds and Iowa Economic Development Authority Director Debi Durham.
A green business park is a commercial development that’s built following written, environmentally-friendly standards. Iowa’s first to get that designation is the Woodward Eco Business Park in Woodward.
Nearly 285 acres of the Anderson 400 now are available for a business, such as a corporate headquarters. The remainder of the site will maintain the natural rolling hills, wetlands and woodlands.
