Development Authority of Heard County Expanding Their Industrial Park East
The Heard County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved an intergovernmental agreement last fall with the Development Authority of Heard County to assist with the site preparation and grading at the Industrial Park East to bring to completion the expansion of the park.
Chairman of the Development Authority of Heard County, Terry Harper stated: “The Development Authority of Heard County is excited to be completing four (4) new build-ready sites in our Industrial Park East, with utilities in place. We will be marketing these sites to potential industry as well as to state-wide developers. The sites are located just off U.S. Highway 27 with easy access.”
Heard County Board of Commissioners Chairman, Lee Boone stated: “As Chairman, I am proud to see the County and the Development Authority working diligently together on projects that will enhance our ability to attract business and industry to our community. We realize the critical needs here in our County and have combined our resources for that purpose.”
The Industrial Park East is already home to PlastiPaint, Inc. and the Franklin campus of West Georgia Technical College. Building sites being completed include one 35,000 square foot building site, two 12,000 square foot building sites and one 10,000 square foot building site. All in the city limits of historic Franklin!
