Infrastructure for Growth

Franklin County Development Council

THE FACTS: Ottawa is located approximately 30 miles southwest of the greater Kansas City area on Interstate 35. I-35 connects Laredo, Texas to Duluth, Minnesota making this superhighway a prime mode of transportation for manufacturing and distribution companies located in Ottawa. Because Ottawa is located next to a major Interstate, Ottawa is extremely attractive to manufacturing and distribution companies. 

OPPORTUNITY: Encouraging economic development is a major focus for the City of Ottawa. As a result of this focus and Ottawa’s strategic location, manufacturing and distribution are the leading commerce. For example, major companies such as American Eagle Outfitters, Midwest Cabinets and Wal-Mart Distribution have recently invested or expanded in the Ottawa area. Land is available along this major traffic artery, making Ottawa prime for additional growth and development. 
· While I-35 is the major transportation outlet for the city, US 59 and Kansas 68 highways also serve the community. 
· The Ottawa Airport, owned by the city, is managed by a Fixed Base Operator and serves the community with air transportation. 
· The city also provides infrastructure in terms of water, wastewater and electric service.
· Kansas Gas Service provides natural gas to the community.

Total capacity of the Ottawa system including purchased power and self-generation is 42.9 MW.
