Ferdinand (Mobel) Indiana Prime Site Certification Presented Today

Ferdinand – (NNDC)

Left to Right. Stan Ruhe and Phil Ruhe accept the Indiana Site Certified Prime Certificate from Indiana Office
of Community & Rural Affairs, Executive Director Jodi Golden today at a ceremony at the Ferdinand Town Hall.

The Indiana Site Certified program certifies sites that are ready for economic development.
Communities of any size may apply for the designation through the Indiana Office of Community and
Rural Affairs (OCRA).

Indiana recognizes three tiers of readiness: Silver, Gold, and Prime. Ferdinand will be designated as
Prime.  The Prime tier builds upon Gold by requiring 30 contiguous acres, a location no more than 2.5 miles from a state highway, and an archaeological investigation. In addition, the LUG, LEDO or REDO must own the property or an option must be held with the owner.  Indiana Site Certified sites are featured on Indiana’s Site Selector Database and will be included in the Indiana Economic Development Corporation’s (IEDC) marketing materials.  The physical address of the Ferdinand/Mobel Indiana Prime Site is W 23rd Street/Industrial Park Road.
