GA Peanut Comm. moves into the future

Officials broke ground Monday on what will soon be the new headquarters for the Georgia Peanut Commission.

The new location is located just off Interstate 75 next to the Georgia Agrirama. Officials hope the very visible location will attract visitors off the interstate.

The new location will have a gift shop and a special cooking demonstration kitchen where they can do live web casts.

Also, it will be the first Eco Friendly Net Zero Energy Government building in Georgia.

"We have building integrated alternative energy systems, we have a system that will provide the energy for the building and we have a rainwater capture system so we will be able to capture and reuse the rainwater both inside the building and for irrigation," said Architect Simone DuBoise.

Construction will start in a few months and should take about a year. The commission is also selling special commemorative bricks for anyone interested.
