Help put your community on a business's short list by certifying your development-ready site. Enrolling in the CRS program assures companies that they are receiving the most accurate, detailed information about the site, mitigating some of the risk associated with development and making your community more attractive for their project.
The South Dakota Certified Ready Sites (CRS) Program is an economic development tool available to cities, counties, and developers in the state. The purpose of the program is to promote commercial and industrial sites that are development ready.
The South Dakota CRS Program is operated under the supervision of the Governor's Office of Economic Development (GOED) for the purpose of providing consistent information on sites available throughout the state.
