Equity Fund: $433,000

Awarded: 11/07/2007

Applicant: Jenkins County Development Authority

Equity funds to assist with land acquisition of 180 acres to begin developing an industrial park known as the Paramore Hill Industrial Park. An option on an additional 60 acres yields a total of 240 acres under local control (the entire tract is +/- 400 acres). The site, with access to GA Hwy 17 and direct access to Norfolk Southern rail service, is large enough to attract the types of industries needed to boost both the local and regional economy. The site is listed with GA Power, Georgia EMC and GDEcD. Jenkins County has committed $125K for in-kind site clearing support. With a recently received $25,000 Georgia DOL grant, the county is preparing brochures to market the property.

Total Budgeted Project Cost: $577,350
