Lake Park - With the recent announcement of Metro status and a growing South Georgia economy the Valdosta Lowndes County Industrial Authority has announced the opening of a second incubator site in Lake Park.

The incubator site covers approximately 24 acres and is designed for light manufacturing, fabrication and small distribution centers. The Industrial Authority plans on offering 2 acres lots for each business. All the incubator sites include sewage, water and easy access to I-75.

"We have had a lot of inquiries from businesses that were interested in two and three acre lots." Ken Garren

The project cost about $450,000, half of which was paid for by the One Georgia Grant. The site hopes to bring in 80 to 90 jobs and 10 million in capital investments.
