The Village has approximately 20 acres of vacant land available for Industrial Park expansion. The site is currently divided into parcels ranging from approximately three to ten acres in size, but could be reconfigured. The Village is willing to work with a buyer to divide the property as needed and to install street access and Village utilities. This property is located just off State Highway 16 on the west side of Fall River.
