Making Good Things Happen in Shelby

December 12, 2016

Property acquired through a partnership between the city of Shelby and Cleveland County has been certified as a site ready for development. The intent of the partnership is to develop the 64 acres of land located at 2215 Randolph Road into a light industrial park, similar to the Foothills Commerce Center, according to Shelby city manager Rick Howell. The city owns the land, but the cost of the acquisition was split evenly between the city and the county. A “for sale” sign was installed at the site on Thursday to advertise the site to potential developers. Shelby mayor Stan Anthony said he is confident the property will attract new industry and bring new jobs to the area.
