CenterPoint informational meeting scheduled

Approximately 900 acres located along

the northern side of U.S. 58 (Holland Road), West of Kenyon Road, and South of

the CSX Railroad line has been submitted to Suffolk’s Department of Planning

and Community Development for rezoning. This property will soon be presented

to the Suffolk Planning Commission and then on to Suffolk City Council for

rezoning consideration.

The City of Suffolk has asked the new landowners, CenterPoint Properties, to

conduct an informational meeting to discuss this proposed rezoning with the

public at Lakeland High School, 215 Kenyon Road, Wednesday, September 24,

2008, at 6:30 pm. CenterPoint Properties will present an overview of their

master development plan and will be available to answer questions until 8:00pm.

This new proposed CenterPoint Intermodal Center is in response to meeting the

growing volume of port traffic, which according to state officials needs more than

60-million square feet of additional space for current and future transportation

related commerce. CenterPoint Properties expects to build more than 5-million

square feet of distribution, light industrial, heavy industrial and office space at the

park.

Citizens are encouraged to attend this meeting if they have questions or would

like to learn more about this rezoning request.
