Ashburn- It's been four years in the making and Tuesday, the Chamber of Commerce cut the ribbon on the new Ashburn-Turner County North Industrial Park.

They're hoping the 120-arce site will soon become home to new employers. [

"In the last 4 years we've had four new small to medium-sized industry open, anywhere from your 20 person, to your 50 person employer. That's what we are gearing this park towards. Of course, we'll be thrilled if somebody wants to come in with more," says Chamber president, Shelley Zorn.

The $1.2 million industrial park was completed with a OneGeorgia grant, federal money, and local tax dollars.
