Laurens County

Equity Fund: $488,547

Awarded: 06/24/2009

Applicant: City of Dublin and County of Laurens Development Authority

Equity funds for the construction of a truck entrance and a 3,900 foot industrial access road at their 255-acre Industrial Park along Interstate 16 in Laurens County. The rural city of Dublin and Laurens County are located in middle Georgia halfway between Atlanta and Savannah. Laurens County is a hub for an 11-county area that relies on it for employment, educational, medical, recreational, cultural and shopping opportunities. The industrial park has all utilities in place; however, the current access road is insufficient to show the entire site to potential prospects. The proposed road, which will allow access and usage to the entire site, has been fully engineered to industrial standards, and can be constructed immediately upon bidding the project. DA has ownership of the land and has designed the site for maximum benefit to the community and region. The site will be vital for returning jobs lost in Middle Georgia, and the access road will aide in the recruitment of new companies to the region.

Total Budgeted Project Cost: $3,569,470
