* South Dakota’s Certified Ready Site Program offers expanding business prequalified sites that are ready for development.
A South Dakota Certified Ready Site mitigates the risks associated with development by providing detailed information
about the site including price and availability, utilities, access, and environmental concerns. Sites must obtain recertification
regularly to ensure accurate, reliable data.
