Georgia Allies established the Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development Sites program, preparing available, shovel-ready sites for rapid industrial development with advance due diligence.

To qualify for GRAD status, local community or economic development organizations submit available sites to Allies. A third party reviews the submission, assessing minimum acreage (50), ownership security, zoning designation, road and rail accessibility, utilities service, and wetlands and stream delineation.

Previously conducted surveys for these sites include topographical, geotechnical and environmental (Phase I) data, plus investigations for cultural resources and endangered species.
