For the City-Times
The Stevens Point Forestry Dept. received a $25,000 grant from Canadian National (CN) for trees and landscaping in the new East Park Commerce Center, which is now open for development. The money will be used to plant about 100 trees in the street rights of way in the EPCC.
These street trees will play an important role in calming traffic and safety when strategically placed throughout the park.
EPCC is the largest of its kind in Wisconsin, and offers commercial tenants flexibility in site location, size and potential for direct access to Canadian National’s main railroad line running from Canada to Chicago. The park is over 700 acres in size and was designated a ‘Certified in Wisconsin’ development-ready site by Governor Scott Walker and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) last year.
