Community leaders gathered with City of Ocala officials at a recent groundbreaking to celebrate the construction of the SW 67th Avenue extension. This road is a major step in developing the infrastructure needs for the Ocala Business Park at Ocala International Airport.
This extension of SW 67th Avenue to SR 40 will provide accessibility to about 400 acres within the Ocala Business Park. The $3.5 million project is expected to be complete within a year and will include the installation of water, sewer and stormwater services. Marion County has agreed to donate a parcel of land to make the project possible.
EDC President/ CEO Pete Tesch commended the City’s progress, “This business park will be an effective tool to attract and retain businesses in our community. Thanks to Ocala City Council, City Manager Rick Horst and staff members’ hard work, this dream is becoming a reality.”
