Roberson Business Park

Williamston has begun the development of an industrial park within the city limits. The park will be conveniently located on proposed Hwy-125 North Bypass. The park location is approximately 1.5 miles from the new Hwy-64 and Hwy-125 (Senator Bob Martin Ag Center exit) interchange with easy access to Hwy-13/17 North and Hwy-17 South. The park contains approximately 80 acres divided into 14 parcels ranging in size from 3.56 to 5.38 acres.

Services to the property include city water and sewer. Rail service will be available since the park has over 2700' of frontage along a main track of CSX Railroad. Highway entrance will be provided with a traffic signal. Natural gas service has entered the county and officials have been made aware of the need for this service within the park. Electrical service will be provided through Dominion North Carolina Power.
Financial Assistance
Williamston and Martin County are classified as Tier 1 areas within state economic development programs. This provides preferred consideration on state economic development programs and grants.

These credits range up to 3.5% of total new investment and are provided over a five–year term. Martin County has an incentive program that gives priority to creation of jobs and may also provide benefits to qualified businesses.
