Land Use Plan &



Re-Development Plan



The following details the first steps necessary in implementing the land use plan. These steps are not complete, nor sufficient to achieve the overall end. Out of each step will come additional questions and issues that need to be addressed, man-aged and planned for. That said, they represent a solid start point.



Building Demolition

  The demolition plan is currently underway. Demolition plans for the shaded buildings should be undertaken only after having considered their potential for reuse.



Market Assessment

  The market for the SYSCO property should be confirmed by site locators who are able to put the property and the CBRM region into the North American manufac-turing context. Ideally a thorough SWAT analysis would be undertaken, with all parties necessary to business in CBRM participating in good faith. The results of this work should help target the industries most likely to be attracted to the prop-erty, help inform the land use plan in terms of infrastructure investments, as well as identify other critical items that are necessary to success (e.g., training, man-agement, business climate, etc.). The focus of this work should be around identifying, locating and attracting the anchor tenants for the industrial park.



Property Development Plan

  There has been considerable interest in the SYSCO property from local businesses. In order to facilitate rapid start-ups, a property development plan that locates properties, new roads, and associated infrastructure is essential. This plan should also consider appropriate tenant mix, lease protections, long term management and operations issues. In this way, as site classification units are cleared environ-mentally, they can be redeveloped rapidly and in stages. The property development plan would provide this overall direction thus allowing staged de-velopment. The property development plan itself requires master plans for : power, sewer, potable water, process water, site grading and stormwater, rail, streets and sidewalks; and operations and management.



Street Infrastructure

  There is no technical reason why new streets need to be constructed immediately. That said, there is a very strong community sentiment that truck traffic associated with the bulk commodities terminal, the Emera dock, new business startups and the clean-up on both the SYSCO and Coke Ovens property not be on city streets. Given the level of public concern, and the potential for private sector partners, the collector street providing direct connection to Highway 125 should be expedited.
