The determination of the future of the Sara Lee site in Killarney will be prioritised in 2017.
Today’s meeting of Killarney Municipal District has heard a report on the methodology for advancing the project will be furnished to members early in the new year.
While recognising the Island of Geese site in Tralee is not entirely comparable, members acknowledged the success of the public engagement process employed.
As such, it’s hoped a similar public engagement process will help inform the development of the Sara Lee site.
Funding mechanisms have yet to be identified for the Killarney site.
The Sara Lee ladies garment factory closed over ten years ago.
