Fentress’ Clarkrange Business Park Officially Has Two Pad-Ready Sites

Fentress County’s Clarkrange Regional Business Park now officially has two pad-ready sites.

Chamber of Commerce Director Jacob Rosenbaum said the project was made possible with the help of a TDEC grant. He said the grant was originally a 95-5 match, but after COVID ended up requiring more funds.

“We have two graded sites that are now ready, pad-ready, so we can start building on those in the future,” Rosenbaum said. “And it’s enough space that we can accommodate, together, up to a 400,000 square-foot building.”

Rosenbaum said they are continuing to promote the development of the Clarkrange Regional Business Park. He said they continue to answer several requests for information about he site, although some requests have been out of the scope of the site’s capabilities.

Rosenbaum said they are also working to further develop the site by utilizing a potential grant with the Appalachian Regional Commission. He said the funding would be used for tree clearing, which could open up an additional 40 acres for development at the business park.

“So that we can establish more lots for other future potential occupants,” Rosenbaum said.”So we’ve got quite a bit going on.”
