Land Use History
All industrial park property is publicly owned and can be acquired within 30 days. All sites were previously undeveloped before they were used for agricultural or industrial purposes. Bolivar County does not have zoning regulations at this time. Therefore, only the State of Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will regulate industrial permitting processes. All sites are free of wetland, archaeological issues and endangered species, located outside the 100-year flood plain, and they are ready for construction.
