The purpose of the Missouri Certified Sites program is to provide consistent standards regarding the availability and development potential of commercial or industrial development sites. The certification of a site is performed through a comprehensive review of items including the availability of utilities, site access, environmental concerns, land use conformance, and potential site development costs. Having a site “certified” reduces the risk associated with development of particular sites by providing up front and consistent information. To this end, the certification process works to assemble current and accurate information into a single, useable package and format it such that potential buyers can have this information readily available for review immediately upon showing interest in a site.
