"You have pooled your resources and are now poised to reap benefits.  I do not doubt that I will be back soon for a groundbreaking. In fact, if you think about it, your last certified site you were in the final process of certifying when you actually sold the site to Seaboard."

Sioux City Mayor Bob Scott yesterday said shovel ready sites are crucial for economic development.

The 120-acre site is in the Southbridge Business Park, between Interstate 29 and the Missouri River.
