MT. VERNON — Local leaders and residents gathered Friday afternoon to celebrate the ribbon cutting of Chesley Industrial Park along Route 15 on Mt. Vernon’s west side. The park is named after Mary Jane Chesley, a long-time resident and former mayor of Mt. Vernon.
Mt. Vernon City Councilman Donte Moore says Chesley puts Mt. Vernon first every time.
Chesley says after working on the Rolland W. Lewis Industrial Park many years ago, she says the time and energy and dedication Mt. Vernon city leaders have is second to none.
City leaders started the process of created the Chesley Industrial Park because of limited space in the industrial park to the north because of the economic development in that area.
