Development of the 761-acre Sandy Run Industrial Park is underway. In mid-2022, Red Rock Development broke ground on a speculative building in order to attract industry. The facility is the largest expandable spec building to ever be constructed, according to the company.
The spec building has now been fully leased by a warehousing company out of Missouri.
For more information on the development, please visit Red Rock Development's Sandy Run Industrial Park page here. A brochure is available to download with more information on leasing.

Star, 7 Months Old
This little lady was picked up with her 5 siblings after being dumped on the side of the road in a small remote town. She is more than likely not potty trained. Must go to a house different from her other siblings because they have formed a pack mindset.
