SCDA Board & Community Leaders Say Thank You
The Stephens County Development Authority and other community leaders showed our appreciation to our dedicated public works crews by sharing chilled, seedless watermelons on a hot summer day. The development authority routinely calls on both the City and County crews to help us keep our properties mowed and in repair. We could not accomplish the things we do without their help and support.
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.
