Representatives from Van Vactor Farms, Inc. presented the Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety a check this week for their portion of the proceeds of the land sale at the techFarms site.
Patty Van Vactor Wright and David Miller presented a giant check in the amount of $111,493 for the city’s Monetary Gift Fund.
The techFarm is located on Miller Drive and Pioneer Drive on the west side of Plymouth and consists of 20 acres zoned industrial and 11.3 acres zoned as commercial land. The city helped extend infrastructure to the park in 2010 so the site is ready for development.
According to Miller, the techFarm currently has two tenants. One tenant is C-Spine, an orthopedic and dental device manufacturer while the other is CTE Solutions, a manufacturer of orthopedic implants and instruments.
The Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety has earmarked $90,000 of techFarm proceeds toward the construction of a footbridge designed to cross the Yellow River on the south portion of the South Gateway Project near S. Michigan Street and Lake Street in Plymouth.
