Duke Energy Economic Development Specialist Haley Roubicek and Director of Economic Development Erin Schneider present a check to Boone EDC Executive Director Molly Whitehead and Zionsville Mayor Tim Haak.

Zionsville, Ind. – The Boone County Economic Development Corporation (Boone EDC) has received a $10,000 grant from Duke Energy to implement development strategies as part of Duke’s Site Readiness Program.

In May, Duke Energy selected Creekside Corporate Park, a 66-acre site in Boone County, for participation in the company’s 2018 Site Readiness Program which identifies, evaluates and improves sites for potential industrial development. The site is located near the intersection of Creek Way and 106th Street in Zionsville.

“We are grateful to our partners at Duke Energy for providing this opportunity for us to expand our attraction efforts in Boone County,” said Boone EDC Executive Director Molly Whitehead. “We look forward to working with the town of Zionsville to continue drawing new businesses to Creekside Corporate Park.”

A national site-consulting firm met with town and county officials earlier this summer to analyze the site and has made development suggestions based on its comprehensive assessment. The grant from Duke Energy will be used to help implement the recommendations.
