ROBARDS, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky industrial site is set to become the first one officially certified under the state’s Build-Ready program.

Build-Ready is a program launched by the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development earlier this year. State officials pitch it as a cost-effective way for communities to distinguish their list of available industrial sites to meet the needs of today’s site selectors.

In addition to shovel-ready sites and pre-existing buildings, communities now have the option of proactively preparing and marketing land to potential companies without assuming all the risk and cost of constructing a building.

The site is in Robards in Henderson County.

Build-Ready sites will receive special designation on the Cabinet’s SelectKentucky.com website and other collateral materials that will be marketed around the world.
