ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FOCUS

Phil Paradice, Region IV Director of the Economic Development Administration (EDA) and Jim Byard, Director of ADECA, were in the TARCOG region in early April, and went with Nancy Robertson and Lucas Blankenship to see some potential economic development projects in Madison and Limestone Counties. A meeting with Jim Hudson and tour of the Hudson Alpha Institute for Biotechnology enabled them to hear the vision of the center and about some the business growth they anticipate, and the GE Aviation site was also visited.  Both EDA and ADECA were recognized at the 30 year anniversary of the Intermodal Center at the Huntsville International Airport for the contributions of those agencies to the Center’s development, and its tremendous economic impact over the past three decades.
