3. Industrial Drive
This site is approximately 22 acres in area and is generally located south of Highway 217 and is bounded by industrial lots, residential lots, and institutional uses.

The remaining available lands (in yellow) total roughly 10 acres and are surrounded with streets that include municipal services including sanitary sewer, water distribution system, overhead electrical (3 phase on Industrial Drive), and paved roads with roadside ditches and culverts for drainage.
A watermain and forcemain has been installed through the center of the project area connecting Shreve Street to Industrial Drive and an easement is in place to protect this corridor. There are three wastewater pumping stations near the site, one at the end of Shreve Street, one on Highway 217, and one at intersection of Industrial Drive/Highway 217. The area is zoned Industrial M under the Conway Area Land Use Bylaw (338 KB) where a wide range on nonpolluting and appropriate commercial uses can be developed.
