Current land occupants include a pipe valve and fitting distributor, and a warehouse facility and a new, one-story building available for lease will be under construction in the near future.
Cliff Street provides access to the Douglas Business Park. Cliff Street originates in Webster as Sutton Road and continues into Oxford, and therefore would not significantly impact traffic within Douglas.

These sites are noted for the ease of land ownership issues, proximity to route 146, the major North-South highway between Rhode Island and Massachusetts that connects into the Massachusetts Turnpike, and the Town’s master plans to develop these sites to their full capacity.
