he Bryan County Development Authority's official grand opening of the Interstate Center will be held April 17.
"This ceremony is twofold," said Jean bacon, executive director of the authority. "We’re celebrating the fact that we have met most of our goals with our original 272 acre site of the Interstate Centre. We want to thank the Commissioners and all those who have helped us with this project. We also feel like this is a good opportunity to share what we have with our neighbors and those around the state, showing them we have a very good site here and this is a perfect opportunity to relocate their business to Bryan County."
The featured guest of the event will be Governor Sonny Perdue and Sonny Dixon is schedule to emcee the festivities. The event is in the final planning stages, led by Development Authority board members Linda Barker and Steve Croy. Barker gave the committee report update during the Development Authority meeting on Thursday, March 20.
"I think Senator Eric Johnson will also be attending – we have invited every elected official in the state, so it should be a good turnout," Barker said. "This event will highlight the completion of the Industrial Centre and showcase what is available."
