Perry Industrial Park, Perry, Iowa

The Perry Industrial Park is comprised of a total of 151 acres certified for light industrial business development; it is already established as a successful Research and Science Park with industry leading tenants.

As a Certified Site, the Perry Industrial Business Park completed all surveys and mitigated risks. These surveys include, but are not limited to, Phase 1 Environmental, Cultural and Endangered Species Assessment, and Wetlands Delineation. Road, utility, and all other infrastructure are planned or in place.

To spur more development and address the building shortage in the region, Perry Economic Development built a shell building on the site. The building is complete and is available for lease or purchase.

Perry has been awarded a Bronze Certification by SOLSMART, a National Organization that aims to increase Solar Power throughout the U.S. Perry is one of only 30 cities in the U.S. to receive an award.

Perry has been designated one of Iowa's "Great Places." Learn more about this progressive community. From the "Bike Ride to Rippey" otherwise known as BRR (or the winter RAGBRAI reunion) in February, the Friday Fests with live music and a mouth-watering variety of foods, the old fashioned 4th of July Celebration, to the Latino Festival and the annual Lighted Christmas Parade in November, Perry has a rich tradition of events for residents and visitors to enjoy.

The city of Perry has begun a multi-million-dollar renovation of its downtown area, beginning at the area surrounding the historic Carnegie Library Museum. Perry has enhanced its downtown with a beautiful streetscape project, which includes a bocce ball court at the Josh Davis Plaza. Many buildings are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Perry also has a strong commitment to offer many recreational activities to residents and visitors. Caboose Park at 1st Street and Willis Avenue is the trail head of the in-town portion of the Raccoon River Valley Recreational Trail, which connects to the loop of 89 miles of trails that pass through nine towns and three counties. Firms looking to expand will find that Perry's skilled labor force, convenient access to major transportation routes and the community's proactive approach to economic development provides Perry a competitive advantage over other communities in the region.
