Greenville selectmen mull land development

GREENVILLE — Greenville selectmen on Wednesday discussed the development of lots in the rear of the town’s industrial park.

One 13-acre parcel, which has some wetland, will need a permit and some accommodation might be involved, Greenville Town Manager David Cota said Thursday.

To have single-phase power installed to the back lots would be fairly inexpensive, but the installation of three-phase power to these lots could cost as much as $40,000, according to Cota.

If and when a business becomes interested in one of these back lots, Cota said, the town should make it as attractive as possible considering there may be some permiting costs involved. He said the town can negotiate a price for the land with the business and offer tax increment financing to help offset the costs of getting three-phase power to the site.

“We don’t have any money to do this [development the back lots], so we’ve got to be creative in how we do this,” Cota said.
