NEW BEDFORD TO REDEVELOP PART OF GOLF COURSE INTO INDUSTRIAL PARK

A 100-acre section of the Whaling City Golf Course will be converted into an industrial park and the City of New Bedford plans to operate the course as a nine-hole operation, according to plans announced Thursday that are aimed at providing 1,000 jobs and $2 million annually in new property tax revenues.

According to Mayor Jon Mitchell's office, the New Bedford Business Park is nearly at full capacity and the golf course, which covers 275 acres in total, has been eyed for development due to its size and access to highways, the rail system and the local airport.
