143 acre Industrial Park for Lee County

September 13, 2002

The Lee County Development Authority has agreed to purchase 143 acres off U.S. 82.

The purchase price - 1.5 million dollars.

These cotton fields at the corner of Oakland Road and U.S. 82 will be cleared for the industrial park. This is the first industrial park development for the County. Brad Lofton of the Development Authority says, "Now we have property to sell, only thing lacking in is the public property to market." Lofton says national corporations have already signed letters of intent to move into the park, and other companies have expressed interest as well. No construction start date has been announced.
