In 2005, the City of Republic consolidated with the Village of Brookline and in doing so incorporated over 5 square miles of prime real estate. The City of Republic subsequently invested over $12 million in infrastructure improvements in order to extend services and expand capacity for business and industrial development in the newly incorporated areas. A proactive rezone and annexation policy in this area in cooperation with the City’s economic development focus has resulted in the establishment of hundreds of acres of available business and industrial property.
The interchanges of Interstate 44, a major national transportation and freight thoroughfare, with US Highway 60 (James River Freeway) and State Highway MM (Brookline Boulevard) provide excellent access and capacity for business development.
In 2012, McLane Co., an international grocery distribution firm, opened a first-of-its-kind distribution facility and warehouse. Since that time, several other industrial and business opportunities have been seized in Republic’s major business corridors and subdivisions.
Republic is currently home to two platted business and industrial parks in the former Brookline area as well as several other commercial subdivisions in other prime locations.
