Baum Industrial Park

The Baum Property is a 60 acre, undeveloped parcel situated in the Baum Industrial Park. The
parcel is the largest, shovel ready, industrially zoned parcel in Union County. The property is
zoned Heavy Industrial (I-2) by the Union County Land Use Code.

The Baum Industrial Park area supports a number of industrial operations including the Boise
Cascade particleboard plant, Momentive Specialty Chemical plant, Outdoor RV Manufacturing
(Northwood Manufacturing), Eagle Carriage & Machine, Inc., Barnes Diesel Power, and
HNS/USA Concrete.

Union County purchased the parcel in December of 2012 with the financial assistance of the
Union County Economic Development Corporation. The property has access to developed
roadways, rail service, municipal water, municipal wastewater, electrical service and natural gas.
The preliminary plans envision the property to be developed through sale of parcels sized 4+
acres with approximately half the acreage being served by a rail spur. Parcels will be created to
meet the developer’s needs.
