Gold Shovel and Certified in Wisconsin Sites

GOLD SHOVEL SITE VERIFICATION

The Gold Shovel Site Verification Program assists communities, counties, and private land owners in packaging and marketing development-ready land to site selectors and business owners looking to locate or expand in the eight-county Madison Region.

Created to provide a similar service to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation’s Certified In Wisconsin program, but at a lower cost, the Gold Shovel program demands fewer requirements and is not held to the same level of review, documentation, and assessment. MadREP fervently supports the Certified In Wisconsin program, and will work with you to certify sites, but we are confident that a site that is verified as shovel-ready through the Gold Shovel Program will enjoy a significant bump in promotion and market appeal as well.  See Gold Shovel Site Verification program details.



CERTIFIED IN WISCONSIN

Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation developed the Certified In Wisconsin® program to set consistent standards for the certification of industrial sites, putting in place all the key reviews, documents and assessments most commonly required for industrial use. Certified sites mean faster turnaround times, quick approvals and low risk, so you can break ground on new development projects the moment you’re ready. See Certified In Wisconsin program details.
