Overpass Business Park

Project Summary

The Pasco County Office of Economic Growth has embarked on an exciting opportunity to turn a County owned parcel of land into a significant opportunity for new businesses and jobs.

Pasco County is the current owner of 100 acres of land which faces Interstate-75 (I-75) and is located 1.5 miles north of State Road 54 just south of the proposed new connection at Overpass Road and I-75. This land has been identified as an area with the potential for 1.8 million square feet of targeted industries development and significant employment, an estimated 4,000 jobs for residents.

It is the intention of the County to invest Penny for Pasco Economic Development funds into this site to meet all criterion of a truly Job Ready Site. A 'Ready Certification' requires the completion of all environmental surveys, the land use is appropriate for the target industry, and the infrastructure to accommodate multiple users with easy access to the Interstate for trade purposes. The County has initiated pre-development engineering services, site evaluation & conceptual design, comprehensive planning & zoning amendments consistent with an Industrial/Office Park. At the completion of these steps, the site will be submitted to McCallum Sweeney, a national site selector consultant, for Ready Site Certification.
