Oakland Plantation continues to grow

June 12, 2007

Lee County--  Lee County's industrial park continues to grow and bring more jobs.

Three businesses are currently located at Oakland Plantation and construction is ongoing. A fourth development will soon be located at the park.

Consolidated Pipe, a distributor of piping for water, sewer and gas will create about 20-jobs and should open by the end of the year.

The county used $736,000 in sales tax revenue to buy the industrial park. Tuesday night, the Lee County Development Authority presented commissioners with a check for more than $98,000 from the sale of Consolidated Pipe's five acres.

So far land sales in the park have returned about $576,000 to the county.
