The Catalyst Project is designed to gather economic intelligence and perspectives for Florida’s 3 Rural Areas of Critical Economic Concern (RACECs). Locally, FHREDI’s regional boundaries are the same as the 6-county region called the South Central RACEC’s (shown in red on below map). The purpose of the Catalyst Project is to target industries of the future, find regional catalytic sites, improve the sites to meet industry or target company needs, and go-to-market with the site as a credible economic asset
Definitions specific to this RACEC Catalyst Project are:
The site search revealed many potential areas across the 6-County region. After careful evaluation based on many criteria mentioned below (not all inclusive), a site at the Sebring Regional Airport was selected.
The 100-acre Catalyst site at Sebring Regional Airport continues to be in process with the necessary infrastructure installations, with a future completion goal of December, 2011. At that time the site will be “shovel ready” (ready to build on).
