New industrial park nears construction

June 12, 2006

Albany - Dougherty County is building another industrial park in hopes of luring new industries and jobs. The new industrial park will be built on about 225-acres just west of Cooper Tire. The payroll development authority used about $1-million in sales tax revenue to buy the land.

Chamber of Commerce President Tim Martin says the other three industrial parks are nearly full and new businesses want better access to major roads and rail lines.

"The East Albany and Parkway Industrial Parks are both at or near capacity. While we do have some additional acreage at the Pecan Grove Park, across from the airport, it's not rail served. So we are missing projects that are looking for access to railroad service," said Martin.

It will take about a year to develop the park so new businesses can move in.
