Manufacturing and industrial parks, and businesses that sell them materials and services, provide employment and community benefits for citizens within urban centers or from nearby populations. Additionally, workers, manufacturers/industries, and businesses pay taxes to governments that are best used to serve citizens’ needs (e.g., maintain city infrastructure, social services) as well as municipal and state/national obligations (e.g., provide security for citizenry).
