Cities cooperate on commerce website

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany and 11 other south Georgia communities are trying to attract business through a new website.

Using Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia resources, the communities teamed up to create Locate South Georgia.com. The website showcases rail access, buildings, and available land along with comparison information for businesses that might consider relocating to southwest Georgia. Organizers say there's strength in numbers.

"You get more ideas, you do get more bang for your buck and for a lot of especially the smaller communities its an opportunity to do the sort of marketing targeted research information that they may not be able to do on their own," said Barbara Rivera Holmes of the Albany Dougherty Economic Development Commission.

The Albany Dougherty EDC targeted businesses in south Florida, sending them fliers encouraging the businesses to check out the website. Already, Cordele has talked with a prospect as a result of the website.
