Equity funds to assist with the construction of public water and sewer improvements to the 376-acre Northwest Harris Business Park, located at the intersection of Davidson Road and GA Highway 103 in the northwest corner of Harris County. With the KIA auto assembly plant being constructed less than three miles north in West Point, other manufacturers and suppliers are interested in locating to the park. The park will significantly increase economic opportunity in Harris County and the Valley Partnership Region which consists of Harris, Muscogee, Chattahoochee, Talbot, Marion and Taylor Counties. Neighboring governments of Troup, Meriwether, and Talbot counties, the City of West Point and the Columbus Development Authority have all sanctioned this project, recognizing its potential impact on their constituents. The park is expected to provide strong regional impact.

Total Budgeted Project Cost: $6,263,090
