Residents Hear About Industrial Park

The Tampa Tribune (FL)
January 16, 2008

PLANT CITY - If all goes according to a developer's plans, more than 
1,200 acres adjacent to the demolished Coronet Industries phosphate 
factory will soon be home to a bustling industrial park with a mix of 
retail stores, recreational fields and workforce housing.

That was the scenario presented by developer Steven Schafer to residents 
during a town hall meeting Jan. 9 at Hillsborough Community College's 
Plant City campus.

Schafer, the president of Michigan-based Schafer Development, said his 
proposed industrial park south of U.S. 92 and east of Park Road would be 
worth about $800 million at its maximum build-out. The cluster of light 
industry, offices and warehouse distribution centers will become "a huge 
tax base for Plant City" and will create hundreds of jobs, Schafer said.
