Green Technology Business Park Feasibility
The City of Shasta Lake commissioned a CDBG Planning and Technical Assistance-funded to the create of a small parcel business park specifically designed for clean and green technology businesses. The subject property consists of 22 acres of undeveloped land located near the northwest intersection of Pine Grove Avenue and Ashby Road in the City of Shasta Lake.
The property is currently owned by the McConnell Foundation. The City of Shasta Lake has had discussions with the Foundation which has been very receptive to the idea of the property being developed for job-creating purposes and agreed to conducting a feasibility study. Consequently, the City of Shasta Lake, Shasta Economic Development Corporation, and the McConnell Foundation requested and received funding to conduct this feasibility study.
Research and analyses has been conducted for background environmental records, issues, constraints and opportunities, infrastructure needs and financing resources, potential clean tech targets and related target income group (TIG) employment, and conceptual park designs have been created.
All steps involved in developing a proposed clean/green technology business park into a reality along with the recommendations from the consulting team’s project research and analyses is summarized in this feasibility report. Additionally, action items for developing and marketing the park to companies within the identified targeted industries are included in this plan.
To put the targeted industries into perspective, it is important to understand that typically an industry sector consists of like industries or companies that operate in the same segment of the economy and are defined by specific NAICS codes. However, the “green industry sector” is not defined by a set of specific NAICS codes, instead it encompasses:
• Businesses that are directly involved in green industries with products and services that leverage clean energy sources, conserve natural resources, provide clean alternatives, and/or reduce pollution and repurposes waste; and
• Businesses that are “greening” their products, production processes, and supply chain.
Businesses targeted for the proposed Green Technology Business Park include a broad spectrum of NAICS codes. Those identified as a best-fit for the City of Shasta Lake fall into the following categories.
• Energy Generation
• Energy Efficiency
• Energy Storage
• Air and Environment
• Recycling and Waste
• Water and Wastewater
• Agriculture Support
• Energy Infrastructure
• Green Building
• Energy Infrastructure
• Consumer Products
• All ideas welcome!
