VACED Breaks Ground on New Phase of Industrial Park

March 19 2021 was a banner day for the City of Van Alstyne and Van Alstyne Community & Economic Development. A new era in our industry was kicked off as the VACED held a groundbreaking ceremony to officially open construction on Phase II of Cold Springs Industrial Park.

The project will provide infrastructure and roadway to the 40+ acres of the industrial park — the first industrial project undertaken by the corporation in over a decade. The $1.2 million project will allow for expansion of the industrial park and provide new opportunities to bring industrial and manufacturing to the city.

The VACED Board – President David Sileven, Vice-president Alesha Crowell, Secretary Robert Jaska, Treasurer Mark Moss, Brad Clough and Sherry Jeffcoat – was joined by Executive Administrator Tiffany Chartier and Executive Director Rodney Williams in opening the project. Van Alstyne Mayor Jim Atchison, City Clerk Jennifer Gould, City Councilman Lee Thomas, Engineer Len McManus, and Robert Lewis also attended the ceremony.
