The city continues to grow as two new developments of townhomes and a large industrial park were approved by the Sanford City Council Tuesday.
After months of discussions and public hearings and unanimous approval from the Planning Board, council voted to approve a statement on the long-range consistency and the zoning map to rezone 10 tracts of land consisting of 879.17 acres for the Helix Innovation Park at the Brickyard.
Helix Ventures, LLC has proposed turning the area into what will be known as Helix Innovation Park at the Brickyard. The park will consist of 879 acres of what Helix officials call “prime developable land.” Annexation into the city helped provide access to water and sewer utilities for the park, which will be touted as shovel-ready site purpose built for manufacturing, life sciences and economic development.
