SCDA Attends Good News Gathering
Stephens County Development Authority attended Georgia Power Company's "Good News Gathering". In all, 20 or so county level economic developers met to share local good news. Each county representative was given three to five minutes to brag on their local community. Stephens County shared good news on our school system, the hospital, GA 17, our sewer expansion project, our existing industries, available buildings, our new $50,000 Property Acquistion Account, and our SCDA Facebook account.
The SCDA is responsible for the recruitment of new businesses including industrial, manufacturing, distribution, corporate and regional headquarters and customer service centers. It also provides support and assistance with all other types of economic development projects.
The SCDA also works with existing businesses and industries to ensure their continued success. While recruitment of new industry is a significant function, aiding in existing industry expansion and retention is just as significant. About 80 percent of all new jobs in Georgia come as a result of existing industry expansion.
